      I'd personally say you're risking a LOT of value by checking the river.

      I can see an argument for a check on the turn, letting him bluff on the river, or letting him believe he's ahead if he's connected with the board.

      But Checking the river would need extremely specific reads to know he'll put enough money in to be better value than betting out.

      Hello feverfew,

      Even if you play such hands from UTG! You should definitely just go for the easy and standard line Bet/Bet/Bet. You don't even know if he is capable of bluffing here, so I am not really huge fan of turning my hand into bluff.

      Best Regards.
