      Villain is 26/14 on 95 hands but at the time I had very little info on him and thought he was kind of tight. 0.9 AF.

      My thinking here is that If I bet 3 streets I'm not getting value out of the hands I want. If I check turn and let him bet all his Pair type hands, floats and draws I can check river safe in the knowledge that a guy this passive is likely only betting again with flopped set or AA. (possibly levelling myself?)

      Now If he checks back turn I can safely make a smallish value-bet to get value out of AQ, JJ that thinks I have AK sometimes TT and maybe even more random PP's that want to look me up. Unfortunately the river was a J which pisses on my fire a little bit but I decide to follow through with the plan to try and get some loose calls.

      His raise makes me think JJ but I have also seen some other fish take this line with a flopped or even turned set So that might be possible as well, I doubt someone this passive if raising river here with just TPTK or a worse hand than mine.


      Ok thats my overall thoughts, maybe I should have tried to be a bit more standard in this hand?

      I would bet 7$ on the flop, 2/3 pot on the river and then decide if I want to shove or c/c
      It depends if player is going to call 3 streets with Qx or not
      I think a lot of times players check back and since boar dis a little drawy you should bet again for value and protection
      As played: call river
      If you take that strange line, you can´t be sure that player isnt raising missed draws or just AQ for value
      You don´t have to be good very often to make correct call in huge pot
