      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q, Q.
      Hero raises to $2.00, CO folds, BU calls $2.00, 2 folds.

      Final Pot: $25.75.

      Villain is a 32/27/3.0/37wts over 136 hands.

      What do you think about checking the river to him to let him turn his missed draws and stuff into a bluff? Or does he check behind too often with stuff like 9x or TT-JJ that has showdown value to make this less profitable?

      I like c/c river because he won't be calling third barrel with K9/Q9, maybe with TT/JJ but I think he is getting more aggressive with that on earlier streets. By checking we get value from bluffs, and also avoid being put in a nasty spot if he decides to shove river.

      Exactly. I don't think I get more value from anything, and him shoving over me would be boring.

      I´d also c/c river.
      You can b7f, but then you should have some kind of history against player who would think you never have there hand and would call you down for example 9x
