      I put him mostly on Kx there, I expect him to raise with sets and two pair on the turn.

      Should I flat river or try get value like I did?

      Flop: I think the best play is to check here. Firstly, our 2nd pair has a weaker kicker. It's not like AT or QT, where we dominate more TX hands so I think your value is a lot thinner here (or maybe you are value cutting yourself).

      secondly, vs a weaker player, checking is almost always better as they will tend to make larger mistakes vs a flop check and completely misread or misplay their hand.

      Turn: I think c/c Turn is fine after betting flop. if you don't c/c here vs this half pot bet you shouldn't even bet the flop in the first place. we beat a couple of straight draw floats.

      River: The river is definitely an overplay here. Do you really think he has that many worse one pair hands which would make a thin value bet? Don't forget he's on the passive side. I would not be surprised if he checked back hands like K9 K8 KJ here.

      My preferred line is to donk the River to 4.50$. If you get raised it would be pretty tough though.
