      cbet, or c/r flop if you expect him to be some sick ass floater? don't see why you should let him off cheaply, go get that stack

      turn and river are karma punishment

      Agree with Tomaloc board is too wet to give free cards and opponents love to draw at many stakes very much 2nl included. I would bet 2/3rd or pot on the flop and definately not go for a check raise here.

      I would bet the same again on the turn as although this card doesn't look great only A10 and random flush draws really got there and for the river I guess I check call if the bet is like the one you were against was and check fold to a shove or big value bet on the river.

      I think you were right to fold the river BTW as I think that bet indicates that it is straight and is still scared of a flush shove.

      I think mixing up and sometimes c/r flop is fine, although often is cbet better and then trying to get all-in with nuts. Leading turn yourself is fine, I would c/c his small bet, since I think 9x would not bet that often, Ax is possible, but he may also bet his two pair hands nor trying cheap bluff

      best regards,
