      against unknown it's very nh.
      Because that ugly board hits his limp/calling range quite hard and he calls nearly potsize bet on flop.
      B/f on turn doesn't achieve much imo, as he can push you off the best hand with a semibluff f.e. AsT or even a pure bluff quite easily.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,

      since you only have overpair on that board I think c/c once and then c/f turn is also maybe fine play
      Don´t really want to build big pot and then guessing is I should c/c even on blank turn or not
      And if you bet flop then it is b/f anyway, so I would prefer then keep pot small and check it down or if he runs out blanks then bet myself river for value
