      Maybe bet more on flop, second barrel and check/call the river :D

      +1
      Seems fine advice
      You´re likely still ahead on the turn, so you can bet/fold again for value
      and since it is hard him to call you down with missed draws I´m fine c/c river
      BB line doesn´t make any sense unless he has there set, so if you call turn I think you should also call river
