      It really depends on your understanding of that player, however even if you had bet the turn or river, he'd of folded regardless so you wouldn't have got any value playing it differently.

      Hello desikuri,

      Preflop: It's pretty close here but while he really gives you that great odds then it ain't like very big mistake to Call it here for the given odds. But mostly you are going for the set only.

      As played
      Postflop: The river is anyways pretty thin value I'd say but that's true that when he really had any kind of strong hand then he would bet himself the river. So likely he wont have the Tx but likely maybe some 2pair type of hand or even weaker. But he may still have better hands, although not really understandable what kind of hand while he played that passively, he wont play this way his sets. So therefore it comes up to maybe some pairs/draws. I guess just Checking behind and skipping the value-bet on river is fine as well and take a look a this hand and take a note. Although if I would bet then I would do it like 1/2 pot.

      Best regards.
