      Villain was an unknown at the time of the hand

      Flop: Pretty ugly flop, hits villains range hard IMO and I'm not sure he folds much better on this flop but at the same time I could still have the best hand. I think that if I do bet here it would be as a bluff since I can't see much worse calling me OTF because I block most draws.

      Opted to check back to avoid turning my hand into a bluff and I think that I can have the best hand here as well.

      Turn: When villain donks the T I think he can be stabbing with some air and draws as well as hands that beat me like 2nd pr+. I can just fold now or call and re-evaluate R and try to take a cheap showdown if I think that I'm still ahead. I didn't see any merit in raising the T because I still think that I have showdown value.

      River: When villain fires the river again I think it is safer to assume that I am beat here. Without further reads I didn't think it would be wise to assume that he bluffs missed draws or air here.

      flop - agree with your line here.

      turn and river - actually i would just still check/fold. i expect them to be passive and not start bluffing even if we check twice to them unless they are regs. and if they are unknown i assume they are fishes.

      Why do you think it hits villain's range so hard? I mean... he is on BB calling a raise from UTG. While many people call with something like AT+, KJ or KQ+ type of hands they will also call with all pockets to set mine etc.

      I don't think I'd check back flop if not to call turn and river against most opponents. If he has a K or Q nice hand, I'll just make a note of his range and exploit it.

      This hand is a good example of why one should avoid one-street-only type of bluffs.
