      flop: bet less
      river: bet/fold

      I would check/call or check/fold if it was nl10 and villain had a big stack.

      The reason why you bet/fold if because it acts as a blockbet and will reduce the time you get bluffed out of pots.

      You should pot the flop, pot turn, bet/fold river with 1/2 pot size bet or call a min raise or something.

      Hi,


      I'm fine with overbetting the flop if you think he is going to call anyway, you have a very good hand and there are some draws out there, charging him extra is good.

      The river is probably one of the worst cards for you, completing both JT and heart draws. Still you know nothing about him and he could very well have Qx in that spot, but if he has a straight or a flush he's going to raise the river (maybe just call with a straight being scared of the flush), so you can get value from Qx by betting and still fold to a raise with confidence that you made the correct play.

      Since you had no problem check/calling $0.9 regardless of the fact that his betting range when you check to him is stronger than the range he'd call a bet from you with, just bet/fold that amount yourself and you'll have taken a better line while putting the same amount of money in the pot.


      Hope it helps.
