      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, J.
      5 folds, CO raises to $1.75, BU folds, Hero raises to $5.75, BB folds, CO calls $4.00.

      Flop: ($12) 2, 7, J (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $6.00, Hero calls $6.00.

      Turn: ($24) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $11.50, CO calls $11.50.

      River: ($47) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $30.00, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $47.

      i thought that his CO opening range was very wide and that a 3bet could take him off a hand. seeing that his fold to resteal was 50%, i expected quite a wide range of hands in his range like pp and SCs and of course JJ+ and AK.

      i wanted to check the flop for pot control and let him bluff worse hands. i then bet the turn since i could get value from some A or K high flush draw, unfortunately it completed on the river and i decided to c/f. otherwise i was planning a block bet from worse Js

      don´t really see why you just c/c flop and then bet turn
      If you want to play for stacks you can just c/r flop and then shove at least blank turn cards or if you want to turn your hand into bluff catcher then c/c him down
      I agree that river should be c/f. Players would not usually bluff there hands that has showdown value and more often they have flushes in his range
