      Hello,

      Preflop I'd isolate in this spot.

      Calling the flop with FD is fine.

      I don't really like your check on the turn.
      We have a very strong hand and we want to build the pot so I would definetely bet here.

      I would expect him to bet any 6x/Jx on the river, so I'd bet like $0.35 on the river.

      Best,
      Plamen

      My line of thought was on the turn: if I bet right now, he's going to fold a huge part of his range. It's easier to bet for value on the river (thinly), because he closes the action with a call, and could call with a wider range.
      Just because we have a monster hand, it doesnt mean we can bet for value. <--> but we have to take the risk, and build a pig pot?

      Well...

      I think we have to bet the turn always because:
      - we have a monster and we want to build the pot
      - the hands that are going to fold here are going to fold the river most of the time
      - we miss value from hands that are going to call us on two streets, rather than one
      - by checking here we are risking to see a bad card on the river

      In this situation, a bad card is a
      1) bad card for US : J, we can hardly bet again on the river for value
      2) bad for our opponent: many overcards, 4th :heart: ?

      Just curious, maybe I dont see something right here.

      Yes, you are right.

      The J would be a bad card, and so as the 4h.
      We will have hard time value betting if the J hits, or the 4h, since:
      - our hand would have lost of its relative strength
      - our opponent would be more inclined to fold his weaker hands.
