      What's your take on turn? I think I don't have much FE, should I bet what rivers? Ace for sure, blanks I don't know, I don't hink he will fold 9x. Should I bet diamonds?

      As played, river do I have a crying fold? I can't see myself winning like ever.

      I don't think you have that much FE for just the turn alone but it's a decent spot to consider 3 barreling to be honest. You should be able to make him fold quite a bit (on that turn and a blank river I mean). That said, river it's very tough. I would be inclined to just check/fold. He plays wide range of hands preflop therefore he will have many weak preflop hands but he also rarely raised preflop which means he is more liekly to be a passive player postflop as well because a) he is passive preflop and b) the average player is more on the passive side postflop. That gives us a good chance to check/check and win and makes it unlikely for us to get bluffed.

      Value betting is hard because we have a mediocre to weak hand but also because a lot of hands that were draws completed.. QJ, 76, flushdraw completed, he has some nice 2pair as well like T8, T9s so very hard to get value because he also has a wide enough range better than us when he calls.
