      This guy wasnt the greatest player so I knew he wouldn't have a hand like AK, AQ, AA KK QQ JJ even TT because I assume he would've raised these hands...
      on the flop with him CC I put him on AT, KT, QT, overcards w/ FD or a small PP.
      on the turn I checked to get value from weaker hands and allow him to bluff which he did a few times in other hands ...with him betting pot I didn't think he had a set and more put him on a Ten but I also thought maybe he had a spade draw with an A,3 or 6
      and on the river with such a small bet if he had the Ten I was crushed anyways so I didnt see the point in raising and just called.

      so when we have these kinds of bad and unpredictable players is it fine to turn to a passive line in order to induce bluffs and let them bet their top pair type hands

      I would c/RAI Turn. He calls you with a draw that pays you off and with Tx.
      You do not want to see a 3rd spade on the River by c/c Turn since u are committed anyway from the point u c/c Turn

      Therefore you want to have value from draws and the only time you get value from those (FDs) is on the Turn
