      Hi,


      I disagree. The guy limp/called from the hijack, he's bad enough to be calling another bet with worse hands like diamonds and top pairs regardless of the 4-straight board in my opinion.

      If he's on the aggressive side since he's more likely to make a spazz raise on the turn (which we can't call) and more likely to bluff busted diamonds on the river (as well as to wrongly valuebet Ax sometimes), checking back the turn planning on calling a bet on a blank river is fine, i'd bet the river myself if he checks twice. If he's rather passive i'd prefer to bet the turn and reevaluate on the river, he won't raise us on the turn unless he has Jx and we're 2-outing, in which case we can fold confidently.


      Hope it helps.
