      1.8 af
      44% agg% river
      45% wwsf
      64 hands

      CO: $12.30 (24.6 bb)
      BTN: $20 (40 bb)
      SB: $30.47 (60.9 bb)
      BB: $55.35 (110.7 bb)
      Hero (MP): $51.34 (102.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q:diamond: Q:heart:
      Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, SB calls $1.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($3.50) 2:club: J:diamond: J:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($3.50) 8:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2, SB calls $2

      River: ($7.50) 6:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $7, Hero

      I do check this flops a lot with this strong holdings to give villains the opportunity to catch up something or induce bluffs. Is it ok?
      And this river?

      Rule Number 1 vs passive fish: Never ever slowplay.

      By default I'm gonna bet Flop and Turn for value. Maybe you can bet river too with a smaller bet size, like half pot or less and get him to make a crying call with 2nd pair or Ace high.
