      Hello Firehoper,

      on the turn i would play b/f and if i get called and i dont hit FH on the river i will c/f.

      If you check turn, then just call his 10c and then check river it is obvious you are afraid of the hearts and any thinking player will bet the river.

      For avoiding variance in poker your line is still correct imo.

      Best regards,

      Preflop: I'd likely 3bet here but against a very nit player it's okey to just Call.
      Flop: OK.
      Turn: I like your Check/Call smallish line because it will be hard to play if you Bet and get raised, you will be in a marginal situation. That's why I prefer to Check/Call here.
      River: OK.

      Best regards,
