      Is it ok to check on the river? Should i bet higher on flop and turn to protect?

      Looks fine to check on river. He could have Q's and flush draws. Being so passive, he'll probably never bluff the river.

      You could bet the turn a little bigger. Maybe 39-42c, if you think he will call with worse (worse pairs, flushdraws etc), which he probably will given his stats.

      Hey prisly87,

      I would against such a station bet higher both turn and river. On the river against such an opponent I would block bet smallish(~0,2$) so I know he is gonna call with any pair if he has. But X/F river is fine as well and it isnt a mistake. Well played!

      Best regards,
