      @4nl you can stick to the charts.

      My advise and it is according to the charts would be to make a 1/2 pot size bet on the flop.

      I think that the flop is drawy, that is, three cards of the same suit.
      According to the chart, when the flop is drawy and my hand is gutshot, I just check/fold.
      On the river, my hand is top pair and I check on the turn, so I bet/call.

      If I misunderstand the meaning of the chart, feel free to correct me.
      Thanks.

      If you bet something like 50-60% of the pot, you need him to fold 33-40% of the time + you have abit of equity so the FEQ needed changes a bit to 25%

      Now he will call you with A:dx, K, J:dx, Qx in general but he also has a lot of other junk hands he is folding

      On the River I would not vbet because you get virtually only calls from better (AT/AQ, any )

      Best regards,
