      First I want to ask you are you playing MSS or SSS?

      Preflop calling is fine.

      Check/raising the flop is good here.
      We have very strong hand and we want to put the money in right here.
      I'd just make it around $5.4 since the board is quite drawy.

      Turn card really sucks here. QT got there, FD too.
      Anyways I'd actually be more inclined to bet here, since he might have worse made hands, also could call us with something like pair + draw.
      You don't need to make it big - $3.5 will do the job and I really doubt that he will bluff here.
      Of course, the other option is to check/call but then we will have a hard time playing the river.

      As played on the previous streets, I think you could go for something like $2 on the river for think value.
