Very little read on villain, played 11 hands with him and played post flop very aggressive all times. Decided to slow play flopped straight. Right play or should I check raise flop/turn? Also once I got to the river his over bet on the paired board is worrying. Any input is appreciated

As played, I would raise OTT to $0.75-$1, looking to GII OTT and if we are only called I'm shoving the rest in OTR.

If he boated up, then good for him.

Tricky spot as by the river he can have quite a lot of boats given the overbet. We basically need to hope for him doing that with AJ or even 98s to make calling profitable. Otherwise we will mostly be chopping or losing and the price is very big.

I would consider 3-betting preflop from the SB and also check/raising flop as I feel there's a lot of hands that can give us decent action now but could go for a more pot controllish line on later streets given the scary broadway board.

Dirt he, into $0.09 u would put 50BB? why r u going to risk you stack with KQ? If he calls, u have over 100BB in the pot and 110B behind so you should go all in on flop (stack to pot ration almost 1).
Is it reasonable to risk your pot because of 4.5BB?

We are only starting the hand with 100bb effectively... we don't have 200bb.

I would XR on the turn. When the villain bets 0.26 I would make it close to $1.00. Then I would shove the river. I would not XC OTR, and I think XF would be a big mistake.

oh yea sorry my bad, then we have 100bb pot with 50bb behind.
But you are apparently talking about turn my fault.
