      Clear cbet on flop imo.. your hand gets weaker with many turn cards, it never improves, you get some value now, you capitalize on dead money, you control the hand better. A flop bet and turn bet get you to showdown. A flop bet and turn check back get you to quite a few easy river decisions as well. Not cbetting this hand usually gets you into bad spots since it's weak to bluffcatch.

      As played, river is clearly a fold, turn might be a thin value raise but it would be very very thin.
