      BTN: $40.06
      SB: $56.67
      BB: $20.24
      Hero (UTG): $53.59
      MP: $72.06
      CO: $27.90

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is UTG with K :spade: J :club:
      Hero raises to $1, 3 folds, SB calls $0.90, 1 fold

      Flop: ($2.25) A :club: T :spade: A :heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.50, SB raises to $4.25, Hero calls $2.75

      Turn: ($10.75) K :diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($10.75) 5 :spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $10.50, Hero calls $10.50

      Villain is 36/6 with 1.6AF on 35 hands.

      Even if this villain is capable of Check/Raising Ax or TT here on this flop which I seriously doubt his range is still majorly polarised. He also gives me excellent odds so I think flopcall is easy.

      Question is whether I Bet turn or Check Back to induce a river bluff now I hit. I think this is a clear case for checking back turn as his range is so weak I'm only getting more action out of it if he bluffs river.

      One thing I'm unsure of; If I don't hit turn after calling flop nd he fires should I just fold to that action as he's now more likely to have Ax?

      Nh. He is representing nothing and will c/f the turn most of the time. Checking back once you hit to induce on the river is good.

      Fold if you miss and he bets. If villian is the short of player that will double barrel air, just 3bet the flop.

      I think passive player tend to be there a lot of times Ax, so I´d prefer b/f flop that trying to outplay him.
      if you think he would bluff river then checking back turn is better since he won´t c/c turn with air
