      Ckcalling turn to let him bluff is fine if we expect him to call with anything on flop.

      What's our plan though after the turn when we miss most rivers? If we plan to ck/fold we should ck/fold the turn.

      On the river I actually prefer to BET/fold because we can get value from pairs that would otherwise check back often.

      Yes standard Cbet on the flop but with this board I would not really Cbet as every pair is going to call, maybe is better a check raise fold on the flop, otherwise on the turn he gives you very good odds to call with 2 overs. But I would definitely fold if he bets 75% or more...
