      Hi.

      Flop: I think checking Flop is good. Don't see your opponents calling with too many worse hands. Betting flop may also be fine but I have a slight preference for checking the Flop. betting Flop makes more sense in a HU situation, given the number of draws, and also your opponents are probably never folding TX, unlike in a 3way pot.

      Turn: You can now bet the Turn for value vs TX and maybe some draws. I don't think they should have too many 8X.

      River: I am check/calling. While he may have some AQ AJ JQ type of hands, I think the odds are way too good and also there are so many busted draws so I'm definitely snapping this off.

      Thanks.
