      Hello.

      My opponent seemed like an TAG. I decided to check behind flop, because there was nothing worse that I could have got called with.

      On turn I called, because my line was weak and BB could have been capable of bluffing with some flush draws or gutshot.

      On river I would fold if BB bet again.

      So my question is: should I call one street hoping he is bluffing/semibluffing or simply give it up? Ty

      I do not really understand what you mean JohnDoe, can you elaborate on this?

      I would just bet the Flop as a Continuation bet and give up on later streets since I rarely see players bluff you on later streets when you check back

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      I meant my opponent seemed solid, no brainless calling station, so I thought he wouldn't call me with anything I could get value from. Any Jx, Ax, pockets 77+ have me beaten. He wouldn't fold flush draw (probably higher cards than 6, which I am basically behind). I could get value from overcards if he bluffs only. I thought I could accomplish that by checking behind.

      Is it clearer? Even though it probably doesn't make sense.

      I don't think this is maxEV play due the fact you are making yourself vulnerable for getting bluffed out. There is no shame in turning 66 into a bluff by betting the Flop. Furthermore I think you are overestimate your opponent in general because if you look at the hand range matrix, there are loads of hands that would just fold here (look at the combo's)
