Simple hand, but I'm not really sure in these spots whether I should bet/fold, check/call, check fold etc.
Villain (1k) older guy. Not a super nit, but not super loose either. Plays fairly straightforward as far as I can tell. New to the table so no real reads.
Hero (1k) just sat down. Bad image as I lost about 350 to a short stack when I flopped a set vs his flush draw and the flush got there. Maybe I look beatable, who knows.
Folds to hero in mp.
Villain calls otb
I bet 40, villain calls.
Is this just a bet fold? Check call? Check fold?
I feel like I am just getting run over lately because I keep having my turn bets raised and I have to just give up. So I'm at the point where I'm thinking I should pot control or just check/fold half the time.
I'm pretty far ahead of straight draws with one heart, but a hand like 87, 67 etc with a heart might call a reasonable bet. Draws probably call now but won't call river, although a single small heart might call a small river bet.
If I check and villain bets big is there any point in calling? I guess I could call and check/fold river but my ten high flush draw is pretty crappy given I don't expect him to slowplay this flop, so if I'm behind I should be nearly dead.
