      Flop? I dont think I can cbet for value, but BTN could stab here wide, he doesnt bet too big, and I have midpair plus backdoor FD.
      Turn? I dont think I can chRaise for value, probably would isolate myself against stronger hands.
      River? I think this is often going to be for max value. Is it OK to make an exploitable fold here, even though we took such a passive line in the hand? Cause basically I have a bluffcatcher, and I'm not sure how often he would bluff like this...

      Flop - I think we should still bet here. Our hand is pretty vulnerable and we don't want to five button initiative to keep betting and putting pressure on us. Many worse cards could come on the turn and river and we are out of position..

      Turn - would he bet again here? We might want to donk ourselves if he's not betting enough. Obviously it looks strong but I don't think he's thinking that much.

      River - same as turn. Except now we decided to check and face an over bet. I think it's usually a strong hand here and we are usually behind so fold is fine.
