      Is it OK to play it this way? Maybe check/fold or bet/fold river? What should be the most optimal way to play TPTK?

      Nope. Your line is normal.

      I'm inclined betting more on flop - $0,15 or 0,16.

      Definitely bet more on turn. You have to protect yourself from draws and you want to create big pot so you'll be able to put the rest of your money in on the river. I would bet around $0,35.

      B/f the river is nonsense. If he's very tight player you might consider c/c. But since his range that beats your tptk is very narrow (44, 22, KJ) I would bet-shove here for value.

      Hello QubaBuba,

      I'd likely bet on all streets a bit bigger to make it ready to ship it on river. And you can't Bet/Fold the river for the reason that you just getting to good odds and I am as well betting the river likely myself for the given reason that there are still a lot worse hands which might pay us of like any Kx and so on.

      Best regards.
