      Hello Tomaloc,

      Instead of Check/Calling just CB yourself like 1/2 pot size and reevaluate the turn, where you could again bet smallish so to avoid him bluffing or betting big time. It also allows you very often to skip the value on the river whilst you can just Check it and he will very often Check behind those weaker PPs.

      Best Regards.
