      Why don 't you contibet flop ? You got a gutshot after all and you would see where you stand.You have a strong pair also.Very wrong move to check there.

      nope I like your check back. betting to see where you are at is one of the most terrible reasons for betting, often made by beginners, especially when your hand isn't too vulnerable.

      I think he probably doesn't have a Q given the turn action so i like your bet. I think he bluffs with a busted draw or even value bets 9X/8X here especially with that sizing. I snap it off and expect to be good here 70% of the time.

      Hello TheWinnerTakesItAll,

      As long he is passive and we have even showdown value I don't mind Checking behind to get maybe called from worse later on. It would be pretty difficult for us to Call the river anyways if we Bet the flop and Check behind turn and then he bets big on river. :P But meanwhile we could still Bet the turn for value and reevaluate river.

      Although as played I would definitely Call the river for the given odds, no way I am folding while he could be just block-betting with worse.

      Best Regards.
