      I would check the turn, then see what happens.
      Think villain has K with small kicker...was just calling all the way it is possible he rivered second pair....

      I think I would've checked behind on the turn and then called a bet on the river if it's not too big.

      As you played it you really got to know that you're not good at least, but I'm not sure if that's the better line or not since it would be nice to try to get a worse hand to pay off a bit more.

      Flop is good. Turn is also good: I bet for a free showdown. On the river its an easy fold as you are typically never ahead - his bet indicated he can beat TP...
