You were better off leading and calling a push, cant give free cards on this board in case he checks behind

hes cbet every time so far, no reason to assume he wouldn't here

[/ QUOTE ] perhaps, but bad players are easily scared by a flop with all the same suit, or a flop with 2 of the same rank. I think I would have bet rather than relied on a cbet, given the vulnerability of your hand (there's a ton of cards that you don't want to see on the turn).

Checking a flop on a scary board scares a bad player. Betting a flop on a scary board makes a bad player think that you are bluffing. If you bet and he happens to have a queen, he's almost certain to push over you. If you check and he has a queen, there's a good chance that he will check also, afraid that you are trapping him.

mini raise and c/f river against a bad player

What?

You have to lead the flop here and hope he comes over the top with a naked Ac/Kc.
