      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Villain doesn't seem to be extremely fishy so checking back the flop is fine.

      I agree with our bet on the turn and we can even make it larger at about 0.9-1 for value.

      As played river is a close. His range is polarized and all draws missed (clubs, straight) so he may be trying to bluff. I also don't think he'd slowplay that much so I would be tempted to look him up as his line makes 0 sense.
