Hi A-B,

I think we can bet the flop here, as it seems likely we have the best hand when checked to and we can get called by worse pairs and overs peeling, plus deny a free card which is nice since our hand if good, is very vulnerable. As played I like the turn bet.

The river is kind of thin, I think the J sometimes hits him, and also makes it harder for worse hands like A5 to call, but the plus side for a thin value bet is that we bet the turn when there were a number of draws possible, and they all missed, so villain will be a bit more prone to bluff catching us with hands like 66 and A5. Since we are targeting a fairly weak range that is basically bluff catchers, I might touch it a bit smaller, like .65c
