      Bet more on the flop ~2.5-3$
      I lead turn here unless he's really aggressive, don't want to miss value by slowplaying
      I might even 3bet the flop

      If he bets the turn, c/r here is really strong, I mostly fold against a turn c/r unless I have a very good hand
      calling and donking the river extracts more value I think

      your goal is to be all in on river, if he checks behind the turn you're in trouble :)

      First off I'd fold this hand in this position.

      However here you played it and flopped the nuts. So what we are after is to extract as much possible.

      I like Timothy's line with more money in on the flop, like 2,5-2,75 and then check call the turn. And do some Hollywood here to make it look like you have a draw (a 10) and if a total blank falls on the river I would make an overbet of the pot to make it look like a missed draw and steal attempt.
      It works from time to time, but when it works it is a good feeling. :)

      Board is drawy, you´re oop and you have the nuts.
      make it 10$ on the flop and hope that he shoves with two pair or call with draw.
