      Hey Dublinmatt,

      I would bet both flop and turn here. You can still extract value from 1-card flush-draws + Ax and other draws.

      It's fine to check back river however, because busted draws will never call. Ax might not call 3barrels and you lose to flushes/sets.

      I like the turn bet. I think you can still be called by a lot of worse hands and have an easy fold if you get CR.

      I think it is more interesting as to whether or not you should value bet the river or not.
