      Hello,

      Preflop I'd make it 5bb.

      On the flop, without information, I prefer checking OOP. I don't think we can get called by too much worse hands here, and we have to play two streets as well.

      On the turn, since we hit two pair, betting here is fine.

      As played, I like checking the river. I don't think we need to bluff in this spot against unknown.

      Best,
      Plamen
