      The flop was such a dry board so I thought I shouldn't cbet. But then MP started betting, and I didn't know what to do..

      MP: 69 BB (VPIP: 42.86, PFR: 10.00, 3Bet Preflop: 4.17, Hands: 70)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:spade: J:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, MP calls 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold

      "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
