      Slowplayed here. Had some stats on opponent: 54/38/4 over 30 hands

      And he played one hand before the same way on flop like here turn, than I had to fold. Thought that it is good place to slowplay, board is dry and he has very few outs against me. Is my play ok here ?

      Sure slowplaying is ok, you have the deck totally crushed he most likely has nothing, so you make the decision right there to play the hand in a way that you think will induce bluffs from him.

      If you've seen him go insane when shown weakness before, your line is fine. The only drawback is that an overcard might cool the action on the turn if he happens to have QQ+ so reads on his preflop tendencies with big pairs might come in handy. But since he'll sometimes make a 2nd best hand too, it's probably not a major concern.

      You can also try and raise something weird on the flop to get him to spazz out if you think that this has a good chance to work. Be creative :D

      Hope it helps.
