      Seems reasonably played to me (I'm no coach though).

      I would be worried by the second T hitting on the river, so I would happily check behind here, because if they have been calling down with TP, they have just improved, and could be waiting for us to three-barrell before coming over the top.

      Although maybe at NL2 they would come straight out for value with a big hand

      Think checking river is fine. I don't think we're getting any value from busted flushes.

      Hello dember,

      There ain't many worse hands which Call you while a lot of draws missed. Just Check it behind. :)

      Best Regards.
