      Of course you could check turn and try to let him bluff but as the villain doesn't seem to be very aggro he might have just checked back.

      The thing is he can't have hit this board very often since there are not so many sixes or fives in their range.

      Hello,

      Preflop I'd make it 5bb.

      Dream flop but it's very hard to extract value. So we could check and let them see the turn and catch something. I prefer this more than betting small since by checking we underrepresent our hand.

      As played on the flop, I'd bet more on the turn and less on the river.

      Best,
      Plamen
