      Hey Luke,

      Pre and flop is fine. On the turn it gets interesting. When you check you assume he calls light on the flop and with many draws. I personally would bet again, expecting draws to call again. If you check though, and the river completes quite a few draws, it makes way more sense to check/raise because draws that completed bet and most often call the raise too. If you do bet, overbet since his range is inelastic and will always call his completed draw and fold his air or super weak pair float.

      Yeah this is one of those situations where I bet the river with my monster because i'm paranoid that villain will just check behind. And i'm kind of annoyed because I made an effort to try pick out spots where villain has an inelastic range where it doesn't make sense to bet small and now that you mention it this is one of those spots.

      If villain checks back he will show you QJ or smth like that which wouldn't call a bet anyway so you have no worries about missing value generally.. Maybe he calls Tx sometimes but that's just such a small part compared to made draws and busted draws.

      yeah that's true about him showing me hands that I wasn't getting value from anyway. That irrational fear of villain checking back could potentially be a cause of many woes on the river because I think I might bet out on rivers that it's perhaps better spot to check/raise.

      Yep, you have to sometimes check the nuts and look like an idiot when he checks back JJ. :D

      On a more serious note, it's just a question of assessing his range correctly, which comes with experience and studying. Probably a good idea to go through some spots where you lead river without considering check/raising and see what you find. :)
