      Hi.

      Flop: I think checking is a viable alternative for me. I actually prefer checking vs weak opponents cos they either
      a) bluff too much
      b) completely misread your hand and call you down too light on future streets
      They will just assume you have complete air

      Turn: I'm not going to say it's bad here, it could be fine vs some. I think a hand like TT/99/88 often doesn't fold here cos there are 2 flush draws out there and we represent a wide semi-bluffing range. He also has a ton of worse drawing hands that we can get value from.

      But I think c/f is a decent alternative too. I don't like c/c because I think this passive guy will check back his draws on the Turn a lot of the time when his AF is so low.

      Thanks.

      If I check the flop would you play check/call on the flop AND turn?

      Yeah probably, I think most players are only willing to bluff two streets and give up by the river. maybe i'll fold if turn is a king, but then again, King isn't really a card which improves a random betting range.

      I agree that most players will check back the river with their bluffs.
