      First orbit on the table.
      Call preflop? I guess its ok ip and given raise size.
      On the flop its just a call. I dont need to worry to much about FD. And if i raise here im isolating myself against better hands than mine.
      Now on the turn, maybe i should ch behind i try to get another bet from him on the river?

      I like it. You might well get FD's to call here and QJ or something with that turn bet.

      It's fine, since he's probably a tag he'd likely bet again with a flushdraw so we're not really worried about the river, but sometimes you'll see them either spazz c/r that turn with a weird turned combo draw like JhTh and go into check/call mode with a marginal top pair or suspicious JJ, so i like betting the turn.

      It's also your best chance to make it look like you're floating, you won't fool that many people by delaying the valuebet to the river imo.

      Hope it helps.
