      Hi,
      The opponent plays any 2 cards. Am I right in betting my top pair + OESD on the flop and on the turn? Is check behind on the river ok?

      Thanks!

      Checking the river is more then ok. It's very hard to pull off a bluff in those limits. Players can call you with very weak hands like a low pair.
      Checking behind on the turn OK too. There is no FE with those fish... :)

      Hello,

      Preflop: I would rather prefer to raise it up and isolate.

      As played
      Flop: Fine.
      Turn: I think I would rather prefer to Check behind, there will very often Call your bet here and your hand isn't that strong.
      River: Checking behind.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
