      Hello,

      Any information about the players here?

      I would rather check on this flop, since on this board I don't expect to get called too much by worse hands here.

      As played, this turn makes the hands we beat even less, so I'd just check/fold here.

      On the river I think check/folding is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Villain is has:
      VPIP/PFR/Aggr/Hands
      48/2/0.6/61

      He is a fishy fish.

      Does this change things?
