      Hello BrinkyBill,

      Actually without really knowing that the opponent is aggressive or either maniac. I wouldn't 3bet on flop. At the best I'd just Call and reevaluate it on further streets.

      It's just a freeplay pot, it's hard to imagine him a lot worse hands, may easily have sets/better 2pairs. At the best we might be against some draw TP. But against that I'd rather keep pot control.

      As played
      As if you Check it on river then I'd likely go for Check/Fold a lot better 2pairs possible, flush completed. I don't really see what hands we beat. Even for the given odds.

      Best regards.
