      Villain was 51/7 over 100 hands.

      On the flop I have a pretty standard value bet.

      On the turn I decided to check. Could I have bet here, since I also have a straight draw now and there's many draws that could call?

      After checking I called the small bet. This could well just be a cheap attempt to steal the flop with some weaker hands. Since he was pretty bad, I figured he could certainly be betting here with flush draws, maybe some sort of weak pair, etc. just to try and take it down. Of course he can also have some hands that have me crushed here, but I felt like I was just getting a way too good price to call here.

      I wasn't too worried about the flush hitting on the river, but I figured that he wouldn't bet again with something worse than JJ, so I just gave up.

      Should I have played this any differently on the turn?

      Flop: Checking is always an option. But sure, betting is fine.
      Turn: Not betting for sure. I think i would usually c/f if he bets big. KJ AJ AK KT all got there, we aren't beating too many hands. but when he bets so small I suppose we could call and try to hit a straight.
      River: Now fold

      nice hand
