      Bet/fold flop without reads. No point in flatting pre if your not going to bet there. Checking behind can be an option if villian is mass check/raising in this spot or something. But most ppl will just be check/folding.

      Raise turn for value.

      Fold river. Flipping or behind.

      I agree overall, these are good considerations against tags so it's worth learning from. They will usually bet anything strong to protect on that board and check/fold when they have nothing because it looks like this board smashes your range. So just betting as a semibluff to take it down is usually the play, you can represent strong hands.

      That said, this guy is screwing around with a 55bb stack at nl5. You can't put it past him to check anything in that spot, whether it's for check/raising a strong hand regardless of how drawy the board is, or check/calling with Jx/9x/Tx/diamonds because he has something but doesn't want to bet. So i check your fold equity on a bet goes way down, and considering you don't really want to build a huge stack against a halfstacker, i'm down with the check behind.


      Hope it helps.
