      Flop: standart cbet, but think I could x/c here as well.

      Turn: decided to x for pot control.

      River: he is passive, but I don't think I can fold vs small bet.

      Hey Winner,

      Preflop is OK, nothing to comment there.

      On the flop, like you said, you can consider checking but against someone that limped and now called, it's likely you have too much value here so I prefer betting but not by much.

      Continuing from that, I think there's no need to pot control on the turn. You get called again by middle pair and gutshots, by some worse Kx so I think turn is a value bet followed by a final river decision where you can check back or vbet on a good card.

      As played, it's a snap call on the river. You check turn to keep pot small in order to call most bets so you cannot ever argue folding this river after turn play imo.
