      I think pre checking is ok, its marginal, but not a problem while ur oop. Narrowing down our iso raise range while we play oop is good, because we wont get into too much marginal spots.

      As played, after calling both the flop and turn, i dont think he has a strong hand. Most likely id put him on an fd, or an other Ax.

      Since hes not so agro, I dont think he would have bluffed his busted draws. And with one pair hands he wouldnt vbet here, after you betted 2 streets.

      Because of that I ch/fold the river.

      Hello adsefghijk,

      Either way is fine. If you ain't secure in your postflop play then your Check is also fine. Overall the play seems to be fine. Of course the river Bet is kinda of thin since there ain't gonna be many worse hands which pay us. :( You might as well even consider Check/Folding there since they ain't gonna bet with worse anyways. But block-bet/Fold is also fine if you consider him being able to pay with worse.

      Best Regards.
