      Hey Daisuke3823,

      I think it's ok to fire a c-bet and then check/fold. You are not folding out any better hands and unlikely to get called by worse so it's essentially a protection bet with equity. Small sizing works well in this cases, i.e maybe $2.20 or so. You protect your equity and hopefully prevent yourself being bluffed - at the same time repping a big pair desperate for a call.

      Checking is fine also, probably the standard line, your hand is an ok bluff-catcher. It's very common for players to overvalue all types of boat so I can even see players value betting river with hands as weak as 33 regardless of if it makes sense.

      Turn bluff-catch is fine with 2 overs and sometimes the best hand. River fold is good, likely up against a boat.

      I believe so - even if opponent is capable of bluffing here it's a spot where many players overvalue their hand (omg I have a boat), and value bet extremely thinly. Bluff-catching vs a potentially merged range will not be great.

      Even if you are playing against a regular I'm not sure their bluffing frequency would be high on the river. Zeebos theorem says no-one ever folds a boat, after all.
