      Why didn't you lead the flop, you had the initiative? As played your line looks some weird bluff so nh I guess.

      cus his line doesn't indicate air at all. i put him on a strong hand like KQ, mby AK, set or another 2par because of his turn bet. Since he's familiar with the concept of bluffing the river with air, he will probably be more likely to put me on it too

      Is this standard play to call 2 streets like you did?

      with a well hidden straight draw on the flop plus flush draw possibilities on turn?

      yes.

      plus both are pretty deep

      and ihufa can afford a $400 float. Ha!

      no it is not the correct line if you have been making many c-bets. you leave yourself vulnerable to a check raise and the pot gets bigger and you still have NOTHING.
