      Hello clandestineAl,

      Bet the flop yourself, don't Check it! We need to protect our hand. But as played I guess shouldn't be even that huge problem to play it this way while you have a FD+2pairs.

      But obviously the safest play would be just to Bet/Fold it and avoid making us any marginal mistakes on river when we trying to Call him.

      Best regards.
