      Given how passive this villain is I definitely shouldn't float him. It's profitable for me to just call him and always attack the board when he checks.

      I am not sure if my raise is good. Villain is a nit and I have a blocker to many flush combos (so he can have only 2 - K:dJ and J:dT). Is it still better to just call?

      I figured that since I block so many flush combos I should bet for value. However, villain will not call with worse given his low WTSD so I isolate myself vs flushes/KJ and Jx at best. Therefore, I should check back on this river.

      Flop - it's ok to call here we have an over card and gutshot to the straight with a backdoor nut flush draw and J could be good if we hit.

      Turn - raise is terrible here he's not folding and we open ourselves up to a jam which we cannot call. And he's shown that he's cally ttowards a raises and our sizing here highly encourages a call. I rather just call here.

      River - not muchwworse can call here if I'm betting I'll bet really small like 7 dollars for crying calls from 2p set.
