      I wouldn't mind checking back the turn against another decent player, but against some 40/0/1 fish you just have to keep betting and let him find reasons to call you down, if he has Kx also we want his stack, not just a third of it.

      As played i'm raise/calling the river since when he bets out big like that there is a decent chance he also has trips, I'm calling it a cooler if i'm beat somehow.

      Make a note that he has no idea how to read the board, that might come in handy.

      Hope it helps.
