      Final Board: J T T 5 6
      Hero mucked K K and won $55.82 ($26.82 net)
      CO showed Q 9 and lost (-$29 net)

      49/16/68 af turn is higher than flop

      I scared his turn c/r so I chose pot control.
      Is this considerable play?

      I think checking the turn can be OK but why would you do it against someone like him? He will only raise way better hands anyway. I think againast such an opponent your line should be to vbet him all the way. If you think he is aggressive you can bet/call.

      I don't think your line is bad but it's all a question of getting most against this specific opponent and thought process. Saying you don't want to bet to not get raised is bad since it's not a rational deduction of why checking is better.

      If you think he will spew against your check and raise with a good range, checking is fine, just don't make your reasons like this:

      'I don't want to get raised'
      'I want him to bet'
      'I am afraid he will bluff me'

      Or anything like that. You need rational deduction as much as possible.
