      Hey Philfox1985

      Preflop
      Standard raise, although I would make it 4 times but anyways.

      Flop
      I would bet it, but bigger ~0.48 - 0.5
      You are in a multiway pot, there are draws don't give it to them cheap.

      Turn
      You can bet the turn, you're most of the time ahead. But if you do so bet it bigger again ~1.2
      You can also check it but then it becomes difficult. He will bet and are you going to toss trips? He might just bet with any broadway.

      River
      Because of the bet on the turn I might consider check/calling the river. It's a though one here.

      Thats my opinion, might be wrong, we'll see what veriz has to say about it.

      Regards

      Hello Philfox1985,

      You could actually bet the flop & turn a bit bigger to protect your hand and not induce any bluffs against you.

      Although as played the river I doubt that I would play it any differently. I'd either Bet/Fold it or just Check/Fold it since he ain't betting here anyways with a lot worse while there ain't gonna be that many hands which missed. And at the same time he is rather passive player.

      Best Regards.
