      Flop: WAWB IMO, he doesnt always have JX or 44 here, he can have some complete bluffs or small PP's, although by betting them these become bluffs I guess.

      Turn: I don't see any reason to bet here. I don't think any weaker hands will call and I want to get my hand to showdown cheaply or make a thin value bet on the river depending on what comes.

      River: Pretty safe river IMO. If villain decides to bet I am probably just calling up to about 1/2 pot as I think it is likely a bluff (AX or weaker pair)

      When he checks I think I can go for thin value here vs A-high or weaker pairs and I can easily fold to a raise and not worry about being bluff raised here very often.

      Regarding my river bet sizing would you prefer maybe 1/3-1/4 pot in order to extract max value?

      really? Well I guess most people aren't donking like 2/3 here with trips so I have him crushed. I just thought he is folding all his weaker hands to a bet so often ( I think I give my opp's too much credit). What sort of hands do you expect to c/c here? 55-TT?

      I guess I can play b/f T, chk beh R

      TY veriz

      I would bet the turn, too. If he donks on flop and check/raise turn, he will probably have some sort of nuts. And you are losing value by not betting on turn (e.g, if he had some Ax or sth, you can't have that much value on the river if he doesn't hit).

      River bet.. Well, he would fold air on nearly any bet, so I think that your betsize was good. You have value from some Jx hands there, and maybe even missed pocket pairs.
