      Small bet on flop because he is tight. Check call turn because he might have hit flush, I didn't want to do bet/fold to a raise move. Also he would fold if he would have worse hand so I wouldn't get money. The only worse hand that he wouldn't fold is AT imo. That's why beting is bad.
      The same on the river.

      IMO b/f turn is better if you are OOP because you dont want him to check behind and see another :club: on river.
      Also bet more on flop - he is tight but you give him perfect odds on a drawy board.

      Sure he might fold worse hands, but if you check to do him do you think he'd bet worse hands? I don't. He'll check back anything that isn't a flush most likely, since he had to get to the turn with something and nothing that isn't a flush feels good on that turn.

      For that reason if you decide to check it's likely a check/fold, and since check/folding looks really weak you're often better off bet/folding against most opponents if you have the slightest doubt.

      Hope it helps.
