      Hello!

      Is it good option to check behind the flop with 2nd pair here? Eaven though he has small percentage of FtoCB, I think he would fold many times on my CB, but I could get some value on later streets.

      What do you think? Is he too passive for such play?

      His stats: 49/2/33/1,2/58 (VPIP/PFR/FtoCB/AF/Hands)

      Hello Alleen86,

      Yeah, it's definitely good to Check behind on flop with such a hand, he will anyways have hard time Calling with worse while he still could try to bluff on further streets. But I don't get from what are you trying to get value on river, rather just Check behind, he wont have many worse hands anyways in his range.

      Best regards.
