      In this hand I had only 40 hands of the villain and he had seemed quite tight 7/7, only raising in the CO 1 out of 4...
      Should I be more aggressive? Perhaps bet on turn? I was thinking pot control on such a potentially dangerous board?

      Hello,

      Totally like your line because it might bring him to Call with some Tx hand or even worse when you Check behind. Also you could bet out for example against a calling station, they are likely to Call with very wide range but against passive I sometimes pick the Check back line if they are some kind of way aggressive and capable of betting out on river with some missed draws. When he is very passive and doesn't show any kind of aggression then you can just bet for value on turn also so there ain't wrong to check back either bet out.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
