      So, the turn, check behind? Or bet/fold (or offcourse call if i can draw profitable considering the stacks.)

      Turn depends given your history, both are fine imo. Bet to protect or check-behind for pot control. If you bet, you have to bet a protective amount though.

      The river, it again depends. I'd say on average any bet below potsize are callable if you have no reads.

      On the turn I'd bet like the value of the pot, something like $6 or $7. You could get 2 things with this: If he already had his flush, he'd probably call/bet river or raise on the turn. And of course, you were protecting against another :spade: .

      With these stacks I´m going to bet/call turn, since if he has flush, then I might get his whole stack it board pairs.
      If river is blank and he bets pot into you then it is very difficult decision. But that would probably never happen- he would go c/r turnas you´re deep, so he might just hit his set and I´d call.
