      Was the check on the flop bad? I was thinking slowplay as this guy was playing rather aggressive

      I'm c-betting that flop for value. Hands like small pocket pairs / small connectors won't call a bet or bet themselves anyway even if we don't c-bet it's just way too scary of a flop, so there is no value to be had from them. We're better off focusing on getting value from hands that can and will very often call a bet on the flop, namely any Kx Tx Ax Qx Jx most of the time from such a player.

      Turn is weird as played, but since that guy is bad he's probably not just checking back air and nuts on the flop, he can probably "slowplay" two pairs or even just bluff at that turn. Hard to give him credit for QJ really, going broke is fine.

      Hope it helps.
