      Hi Gonchan,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I agree that betting the turn only serves the purpose of building the pot up in case we hit because our FE should be rather small (unless we expect a lot of flop floats).

      So checking to avoid getting raised out of the pot is one option and the other is to bet like you did and fold to a big raise. Betting would allow us to potentially continue on the river and try to get him to fold a 9x type hand however I wouldn't want to 3-barrel bluff an pretty big fish.

      So all in all, checking is probably better.
