      Again, why let him check behind worse hands when you can bet for value against them? 30/3/0.9 isn't really a guy you should expect to bet that turn with a bluff or a hand that you beat for that matter. Just bet again for value yourself.

      I'd go $2.2 on the river as played, i don't think he's folding something he bet/called the turn with for that price. Maybe he calls an even bigger bet but we might scare him, but it looks like a good risk/reward ratio to me.

      Hope it helps.
