      Hey Tombic,

      Check/fold turn looks pretty good against this particular villain. His preflop stats suggest he isn't playing too out-of-line.

      He will probably check back stuff like KJ,QJ,QQ,TT and bet with most hands that beat you. You run a small chance of being bluffed out by a flush-draw, but I think check/folding is good.

      Against more aggressive opponents you could consider check/call but you still have to think about how you will respond to a river bet also, which makes a check-call somewhat awkward.
