      I don't think you should be checking at any point in time. Bet slightly larger on the Turn so that you can shove the River.

      Bet > Check/Fold > Check/Call vs a passive player.

      In my opinion, a passive player would only bet stronger hands on the River, unless he has a busted open ender like 34 or 76. At the same time I do think you do have 3 streets of value vs some JX floats and maybe even 8X.
