      Not a bad line still, even tho on this particular turn card it might be a tad thin. Being beat by both 9x and Kx we're now only getting value from flushdraws on a paired board and really light call downs.

      I think i would check back that turn planning on maybe calling a river bet, since that type of player usually isn't good at valuebetting so if he bets the river he'll rarely have Kx, most likely a composite range of 9x+/busted hearts, which makes us able to call a bet. If i'm wrong about the Kx i'll usually make a note so that i give that guy a little more credit for valuebetting or just blindly merging weakish hands into river bets when his opponents check.

      Hope it helps.
