      I have a couple of hands like this today. I think probably it isn't played too badly, really, not sure. Villain is 10/2 rock. The flop is pretty wet so I check. Since he checks behind I bet the turn to try to take down the pot since he's quite nitty. His call at this point should be pretty suspicious I guess. He's probably got the nut flush or better when he raises the river like this. On the other hand I'm already committed so I can never fold here. I'm just unsure about betting the river. Maybe since he's a nit and called the turn I should just check/fold the river here? But at the same time I have a pretty strong hand.

      Preflop against a 10/2 player I think we can just check here considering that we are OOP and such a low SPR.
      Also his limping range is not weak so I think checking and seeing the flop is a good option.

      On the flop checking is good. Not really the best flop so there's nothing bad in giving up.

      On the turn I'd only bet if I have noticed that the opponent is tending to fold a lot and be pushed around.

      As played on the turn, on the river I'd bet around $0.17.
      When he shoves we can never fold the second nuts here.
