      I bet bigger on flop and turn and C/F river. Sure it may be weak but I think he's normally now on some sort of value hand and won't want to turn it into a bluff on this board and will go for his showdown value instead (i.e. He will check behind with a non Tx hand often enough for a Check/Call to be bad)

      I don't think it's bad at all, tho I'd also bet bigger on the flop and on the turn. I think the river is okay, villain can certainly have worse two pairs and call the smallish valuebet. Wouldn't quarrel with anyone wanted to check/fold that tho, especially if villain is on the tight side.

      On the river as played if you think he's bad enough to minraise worse two pairs it's a call, otherwise he always has some kind of Tx and it's a fold.

      Hope it helps.

      You both called it correctly he turned over 9,T hearts.... But I don't think I'm getting him off that draw no matter my bet size... I actually felted him about 30 hands later anyway so I got my money back :)

      I'll have to try and work on my bet sizes I think, as this is pretty standard play for me.
