      I don´t like it if you´re going to b/f.
      If you think you´re ahead, then b/c, if you afraid flush too often then check back and likely call river bet. Also if you bet turn then I guess your reason is to shove on blank rivers to get value from KQ/KTs, maybe AJ, QJ.
      If you´re not shoving river then you should rather check back turn, since you only go one more street for value and likely you also don´t protect your hand that much (especially if you may b/f better hand)

      I would likely check back turn and call river unless I know that player is calling down very light. If I´m going to b/f turn in 3b pot then I need to be very sure he is not going to semibluff or shove just Kx hands or smt like JxAs.

      best regards,
