      Had no hands on this guy at time of playing hand. Stealing from SB and get called but flop OESD. I bet the flop and decide to continue on the turn since I'm OOP. River isnt quite what I'm looking for. Is the double barrel okay here or should I check the turn hoping he checks behind? I figure that if I'm calling a turn bet after checking, I might as well keep the initiative. Tough to play check-call on the turn then donk the river if I complete my straight?

      Hello Meemawuk,

      While the opponent rather passive is then I guess Checking the turn is fine as well, although 2nd barreling ain't wrong either since we planning to Call anyways with odds there and likely better to 2nd barrel and sometimes even gain fold equity there.

      Best regards.
