      Villain is loose passive. I checked back the turn for pot control with the intention of calling any river card/ betting river for value. Do you think this is correct?

      Preflop I do like 3betting of course, but I will make it bigger here - I'd make it around $0.8-$0.9 against a minraise here, and against people who doesn't really like to fold preflop you could even make it more.

      On the flop cbetting is fine. Pocket pairs are going to call us, and we might get floated from times to times.

      On the turn I don't mind checking back without any specific reads on villian since with our hand we are most likely to get only two streets of value on this board so it doesn't really matter if we do it on the turn or the river.
      But I do think betting the turn is a better option because there might come a bad river card where he decides to c/f, also we do get value from FD that decided to float the flop with A high for example and also you don't get to call a river bet.

      As played on the turn, betting river is fine and sizing is ok.

      Do you have anything to add or ask?
