      Howdy,

      Against 51/0 guy I don't mind checking back the flop because I think he will stick to his hand very often and you won't be able to fold anything better anyway, because I think he will call with low pairs at least once and barreling against fishes can become expensive game. We could talk here about balancing lines, but that's not the thing to worry about on this limit.

      So I like more checking back flop, but there is no doubt about betting turn tho when you hit.

      I think river bet is too thin. I doubt he will call with 8x/9x/Tx when K and Q hits, any Jx beats us now (it means KJ/QJ/TJ and stuff he didn't raise just because he is too passive), so I think checking back river is fine.


      Good luck!

      I´d likely played the same way
      you can check back flop but then you likely can´t call his turn and river bet and 51/0 won´t really c/r you there with draws so you can easily b/f flop
      I´d also check back river. i think you´re not ahead there 50% to valuebet yourself on that river card
