      Hello p0rkus,

      Flop: You could also bet to get rid of some PPs which has a FD in it or just protect from FDs.

      As played
      Turn: If we didn't bet the turn then likely you could bet it now, we still could extract value from some draws or even smaller PPs but it ain't wrong to just Check behind and hope for a bluff on river.
      River: Calling is fine and we induce that by checking both streets.

      Best regards.
