      CO: $32.58 (81.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q:diamond: T:spade:
      CO calls $0.40, Hero raises to $1.60, SB calls $1.40, BB folds, CO calls $1.20

      SB bets $2.60, CO folds, Hero calls $2.60

      River: ($10.40) 6:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $5.20, Hero calls $5.20

      SB 59/11, 11,8 3bet , 51% agg. freq (40flop/57turn/67(15)river) 55hands
      CO 56/27 28% agg.freq. 62 hands

      I decided to check the flop for pot control. I can value bet, but i though i can give them the chance to bluff on the turn.

      He can have and value bet a lot of Kx, but with my flop check, his aggresion, and all the draws that missed, i think it`s ok to call him down?

      Better ways to play the hand?

      Hi achilles,

      If we played versus passive guys I would like a flop cbet for value/protection.

      Considering SB is really aggro over this small sample I don't mind checking flop and calling him down (as you played it).
