      I'd checkbehind turn as well, we have the onecard, idiot-end straightdraw, cant really continue if getting checkraised, and all the better hands would call, so I dont see much sense of betting.
      On the river I'd call a halfpot bet with straight. He can have Qx, but he will rarely have the flush after checking turn as well, and we beat all his twopairs.

      Pre-flop I tried to steal, flop I checked on such a draw heavy board, on the turn I wasn't betting for value. I was trying to win the hand right there with some equity as backup if my bet was called. However betting turn was also a bit unnecessary as you mentioned being on the wrong side of an OESD.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      If we don't CB the flop then I'd not CB the turn either. We can't represent much there cause a of lot Tx hands would have done the CB on the flop. So I'd Check the turn.

      As played I'd also Call for the given odds, especially if I even went for the Bet on the turn.

      Best Regards.
