      Hello Gloryne,

      Well, I'd still bet the turn if he has a weaker straight he will pay us. If he has a set he may also pay us and even with 2 pairs. :)

      Although as played the river is kinda close, something like T9 makes now FH, also a lot of set combos make FH also. Kind close spot to raise while I doubt he is going to Call you with a lot worse. While we at the best might just split the pot. I'd rather be inclined to just Call.

      Best regards.
