      I think your play here is fine :)

      The flop and turn bet are good, both definitely for value but the river card is probably the 2nd worse card in the deck to hit (Behind 6s) as it completes many of the draws that were present. So here I think a check/fold (Especially to his large value bet) is correct :)
