      I like your turn bet since you've picked up extra equity and SB didnt show strength.
      I would check behind the river though because there isnt much value to get anymore.

      Hello StraGus,

      Most likely you have to bet the flop bigger. Although as played I'd just Check it behind on river, there ain't gonna be a lot worse hands which Call you, not that many combos, while 2pairs etc type of combos are possible and maybe even better. Any 6x gives already a straight. :)

      Best Regards.
