      Hello clandestineAl,

      You are practically turning your hand into bluff here. There is not many worse hands which Call you anyways on river. Even if you would bet then it's at the best 1/2 pot size bet and maybe even smaller. Although myself I'd rather skip the thin value and Check behind.

      As played what hands do you beat? Even for the given odds I'd just lay it down, not worth, we are beat.

      Best regards.

      I think a reraise on the flop would be a good choice.
      If MP is betting a flush draw, we give him bad odds to call.
      If he calls, he could have another pocket pair.
      This would make it easy for you to do a bet-fold on the turn.

      He does have a relatively wide raising range (29% it shows in your post), so a 2 and 5 could possibly be there.

      The river would be a re-eval. If it's lower than broadway, I'd call a bet.
      If it is higher than broadway, I would check-fold.
