      BU is 21/3 after only 36 hands.
      BB is 20/7 after even less, 16 hands.

      In this hand, should I've bet a bit bigger and just gone with bet bet bet?? My thinking with bet bet x/r was that I would try and get a bluff out of something like a busted draw or something weak in general.

      I would personally just go for the bet bet bet line. I'd also bet bigger flop and turn because 1) He's not folding a T even if you bet bigger and 2) you want to get as much value from T's and random other pairs/hands that call before there is a nasty overcard to kill your action.

      If you bet bigger you can get his stack in by river easy pease. I would never ever check river here because players with those stats I think we can assume to be passive rather than aggressive. He will proably checkback his tens even. I think there is more value to be won by bet big bet big all-in then bet bet c/r.

      ya bet bet bet, on riv sure he can bet reasonably thinly for value but he also checks back the weaker part of his range, by betting river we can get him to hero some of his weaker part some % of the time and his stronger part jst calls anyway

      I think there's no need to check raise river ,just bet bet bet,he would not float river with TX or 66 77 88

      I think interesting line would be c/r turn and then shove river, since players tend to float quite often ip and then take stab on the turn
      Once you bet on the turn I´d prefer shoving river. he would likely call us down with Tx+ hands and if he has worse then he would just take his free shodwown
