      villain is an unknown fish, but i checked a hand down with him from the BB and he'd flopped TP and didn't value bet IP, so he's super passive.

      here i was value betting, but is this turn bet too thin?

      Don't include the results when you post a hand as it might biased analysis.

      I think there could be an argument for a check back on the flop especially with Js. And even more vs a passive dude.
      If you think he doesn't fold to CBet then bet F, T and check river as played is fine

      flop - against a fish, betting for value is the priority, he is probably calling alot worse and would not bluff out if we check back

      turn - i think there is still value here, flush draws straight draws or middle pocket pairs could call but checking back and planning to bluffcatch is fine too if you expect him to bluff vs missed CB, i wont expect Kx to bet on the river so if he bets its usually nuts or bluff

      river - i think betting for value is too thin so checking back is good.
