      Shortstack loose fish.
      preflop standard raise , and i assume his range is wide here.
      On flop check is for pot control, because if he hold A he wouldn't fold hand, if he got Kx hand i don't see i can get 3street value.
      On Turn now i didn't know where i stand i'm a head or behind so i thinked flop check wasn't good, but small bet easy call.
      On River again small bet and don't let my hand down if there was a big bet i would fold.

      What you think about this flop line?

      Ur logic is sound but to check flop u need to know how many bets u are willing to call. Not a good play against a tough player since ur hand strength becomes obvious

      As played definitely calling down against his small bets. We dont need to win that often and im sure u hav a profitable river call. We get reads as well. And i think ur flop check seems good vs this guy cos he seems bad - level one thinker who views checks as weakness
