      Hello qnb07,

      Preflop: I think playing such hands that early, ain't the greatest idea. Since I don't think that you have enough postflop skills to play them very profitable. Also you may put yourself into hard spots, when you face a multiway pot. Unless you hit really hard, like flush or something similar. I'd play those type of hands from later position. Of course they are playable, but I wouldn't recommend to play them at the beginning.

      As played
      Postflop: Should be fine, I like the block-bet on river.

      And I wouldn't go broke here in this situation as you asked if you should bet on turn or not, therefore your play is fine. I might even fold if the bet on turn would be near pot.

      Best regards.
