      - don´t see monsters under the bed.
      Two pair is very strong hand on that board and if you think player might easily bet with worse hands, then calldown is fine.
      I would personally bet all 3 streets myself for value

      I prefer to bet on the turn (must be big! about 80% pot), and c/f on the river. Or, if I feel that Villain have straight, I'll just c/f.

      Check/call on the turn if we feel we behind is bad.

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Definitely Bet the turn there is no way I am going to turn my hand into bluff-catcher. Rather Bet/Fold the turn than Check/Call. You are never gonna know where you stand with your hand.

      Bet/Fold the turn and might even Check/Fold the river against passive opponent.

      Best regards.
