      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:heart: , Q:club:
      MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0,75, BU folds, SB calls $0,60, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1,75) Q:spade: , J:heart: , 4:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1,2, SB calls $1,20.

      Turn: ($4,15) T:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Just read some Artikels about check/behind induce bluff against aggressive villain.
      Then i saw this hand and the Board is just to drawheavy to do that, just played turn absolutly wrong.
      If there weren't any draws i could do a checkbehind against an aggressive villain?

      River: ($4,15) J:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1,5, SB calls $1,50.

      Final Pot: $7,15

      If you had there Jx I think it is better option to check behind, since then it is hard him to call with worse hands and you can´t stand c/r. Here you can also check behind, but I´d personally prefer betting again for value/protection, since it is very likely he would c/c against his pair+draw type hands and would not really c/r bluff that often that you´re going to b/f best hand.
