      If he is really a bad player I'm going broke on the river.
      Most of the times my top set is nuts and he can bet/calling with a lot of worse hands. Nice hand.

      Yeah I would play the same way. Except for larger bet/raise sizing on flop and turn. You don't want to have to overbet the river to get stacks in.

      Agreed, just bet near pot on the flop, that guy won't care and it will work out nicely after that.


      Hope it helps.
