      This hand was horrible. I flop the nut straight and he plays check-call on the flop. When he check raises the turn I feel like he has slowplayed a set, 2 pair, or has QJ, but since I have QJ I feel like it is less likely?

      I cant really call the river for a chop can I?

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Nope, we don't beat anything on river anymore, most likely I'd also be inclined to just give it up. The guy is even super passive.

      Although the problem might also be that you bet that smallish on turn which may sometimes induce a raise, I'd most likely bet ~$1,50 and then reevaluate further actions.

      Best Regards.
