      This is a great board for you to stack him imo.

      Bad boards:
      3d4d5c
      TcJc8c

      You still have to bet high on these boards.

      FD & SD will get there cheaply if you play passive or go for pot control. By betting, FD, SD or TP hands will pay you off and hopefully will not improve.

      Go for pot control if a 4-flush or 4-straight appears such as four clubs or 9TJQ, etc

      If villain is good however, be wary of traps. Use stats and history against him to make a decision. A nit will call pf and continue with a set for example.

      On the turn, you must still protect against possible flush and now against possible straight. Bet/fold on the turn. And check behind on the river. Then, if he bets the river, reevaluate.

      As played, I would likely call (since I do not see worse hands calling you - but who knows at this limit :) ).

      Preflop: there is a limper, bet to $0,50 on the flop.
      Flop: As played, bet to $0,95 - 1,00 to protect on such a flop.
