      ok i think i played this wrong. I knew my opponent would bet this flop so i check raise him. He calls my rather big raise so i check the turn and the river. My thoughts are that since he is quite loose (39 + VP$IP) he would be probably on a draw if he didn't reraise and didn't bet the turn so i should have probably bet a value bet on the river. Thing is there isn't any worse hand that can pay me off .. do i value bet or check it all the way like i did ?

      this isnt a good board for him to cbet so its like for him to have something . if you check raising here you are reping a set some two pair like 56 a flush draw or a slowplayed overpair . i think when the j of :diamond: comes you have to fire again if you take this line . other wise doesnt makes much sense
      since he is so loose and likely to call a check raise with lots of hands on that board its not bad to check/fold actualy if you dont feel confident with it
      as played certainly check behind river . their arent hands to get value from

      i guess you are right, i just doubted he would have called that bet with nothing as he did so i didn't want to invest more money in this hand. For some strange reason he called , he didn't try to bluff me on the next streets and i won the hand

      thanks for the feedback !
