      Villain-unknown.Is check behind flop ok or is cbet better?I obviously raise on the turn with my straight.Is bet size on the river ok?I was thinking of even putting him all-in(12.89) as he can pay me off with lower straights/2 pairs/sets.

      - cbet would be better with oesd+pair, since you can b/c flop and also call his turn bet.
      Also he may easily c/c with worse hands after that you can consider going for pot control or betting again on the turn

      Is bet size on the river ok?
      - i think so. You can shove, but then it is hard him to call with his two pair hands. Betting smt 8$ would likely be better and get called a lot often

      I actually only have pair+gutshot on flop, so I would probably have to fold to a c/r.That is why I decided to check behind on the flop.

      yeah, thought you have there oesd. Then checking back flop seems a little better idea if you afraid he might often c/r you
