      Hello Philfox1985,

      Trust me! Don't slowplay. :D Worst play you could pick. Bet the flop and let it be if he doesn't have a hand. If he doesn't have the Ax or whatsoever draw he wont pay you much either.

      As what even happened, he decided to bet pot size on river while even a draw completed but you still went for a ship of course it ain't wrong while he could still be holding 2pairs and vs his stack it's fine but if he had a full stack and he would play this way as well QT. :) Then you would be pretty much in horrible shape.

      Best regards.

      i'd just go straight-forward against him....

      since he is a station, bet the flop and bet the turn, (he'll call you both even if he has A with small kicker, might even call with KJ/QJ).... just about 3/4 of the pot..

      i used to try and slowplay calling stations, but i never got payed.... im done with that..
      if he doesnt call you on the flop, its ok, he wouldnt pay you anyways, but if he does, he is most likely to call the turn and sometimes the river even with a hand like A3-AT...

      go straight forward against calling stations, and slowplay - try to induce a bluff against agressive opponents... ;)
