      I think you played it fine overall. Villain showed no aggression so you have no reason to believe your TPTK is behind here. One thing you could consider is, if you put him on a flushdraw, you can always check/call the river, letting him bluff with any missed draw :) If he has a rivered straight you can c/c instead of betting as you don't lose any more than if you had just bet/folded :)

      Hello tofu22,

      Preflop: Against those LP limpers you could as well even isolate. But of course it ain't a must. It's totally fine to even just take a freeplay and decide on flop which is often times even safer.
      Postflop: Well, the guy definitely has a lot of Tx hands in his range which may even pay you. In those freeplay spots I am not a big fan of Check/Calling and letting them bluff while they look rather passive. Rather Block-bet/Fold yourself than let them bet and might even do too big bet then we can't Call.

      Best regards.
