      Hey AtrociousNightmare,

      On the turn I don't think many worse hands call when we bet big, I think we isolate ourselves vs a pretty tight range that will beat us. I prefer to bet 1/3 pot that allows worse hands such as k10, j10, jq to come along, if he raises us then its an easy fold, lots of 2 pair and straight combos.

      On the river, I don't think any worse hand calls us or better hand folds, so I would c/f. I don't think he has many hands he will bluff with so folding is best.
