      Well played imo, he played it like a draw and the river c/c is perfect to let him bluff. I'd bet $0.7 on the turn though, you betted less than half the pot on a drawy board.

      Hi,


      Bet slightly more on the flop, bet a lot more on the turn.

      On the river I'll generally just bet again, bad players sometimes still call with Tx when every draw missed, Jx certainly isn't folding, and hands like 98 will inexplicably call a bet as well just because they made a pair.

      If for some reason you don't think he'll call the river that light and/or know that he's capable of bluffing busted draws, check/calling is certainly fine. I'd very rarely (if ever) check/fold.


      Hope it helps.
