      Due to his incapability of folding I decided not to CBet on turn, is it bad?

      Hey,

      I think you've played it fine.

      The problem with the turn is that it does not increase your folding equity while it also improves his range. Checking back in this case with your high equity IP is perfectly fine. I think your river sizing is also fine but don't make it 3x as a default, think relative to pot size. In this case 3x made it ideal but it's not the 3x that counts, it's the relative size to the pot!
