      no reads on villain. i wasn't sure i would be getting value from any weaker hands on this board so i decided to check call to keep bluffs in his range and probably keep the pot small - was this okay here?

      Hello DrDunne,

      The problem is that there ain't that many hands what can be bluffs there which draw. :P JT already made on the flop. So I'd just Bet for value from something like Qx rather than turn my hand into bluff-catcher.

      Best Regards.
