      I think the checkbehind on the river is fine here, flushdraw got there, some twopairs as well. Betting would be very thin, maybe around 2$ vs some Tx/Jx, but I guess I'd skip it.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      I like your line here, there is no point to Bet the river unless you trying to turn your hand into bluff vs 2pairs. :D You don't get called from worse.

      Best Regards.
