      Given his check-behind, it was a good call and read.
      However, you are out of position and the check on the river shows weakness and you have no idea what he's gonna do, so you can't bet out there yourself and many people would have fired a second bullet, one to which you would have likely folded.
      Therefore, if you're quite confident in your read (that's been correct here), just raise the turn instead of flat calling. That way you won't a difficult decision on the river and you get draws out :)

      I bet the turn (for information) and fold to further action.
