      Hello ExpertsLV,

      To avoid such plays I'd just fold it preflop. :)

      But as played if you Check/Raising the flop then should as well bet the turn to make him fold some pairs/draws. And as you didn't bet the turn then there is no point to Bet the river either, he will have a lot of FDs in his hand there which wont fold.

      Best regards.
