      "Flop is such a dry board so I thought I shouldn't cbet"

      Well it makes it a good spot to bluff and a bad spot to value bet.

      Anyway, having 2nd pair vs a fish with a wide range, makes this a really ez c/c F c/c T spot. And then we decide on River whether to c/c or c/f. I would c/c a small bet and consider c/f vs a larger bet.

      And checking is by far the optimal line vs a fish. If you bet at any point in time, you are allowing him to make fewer mistakes. IMO if you check here, either he
      -calls too light on Turn and River after checking Flop
      -bluffs too often
