      Hello AnCearrbhach,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Already on the turn it's considerable either to bet or not. What worse hand will pay you? So for that kind of reason I'd just Check/Fold the river while no worse will pay you.

      Best Regards.
