      bet turn bigger, so many pair +fd hands/pair + sd/2 pair hands/some worse straights will all call. as played call river. looks a lot like Jx in this particular spot, or villain could be trying to fold you off a chop

      I wouldn't check back turn. He appears fishy so he has a very wide range which means we can still get value from Tx (Jx), 2p, pair+draw, etc.

      I'd bet about 2/3 pot.

      Considering the river puts a straight on the board and villain can also have Jx or even a hand he turns into a bluff I call here. We need to be good <30% of the time.
