      I think your line is great. Your hand has equity but your actual strength against something that calls down is not huge.. A lot of hands have you beat when you get called because of your low kicker. You also need some hands that check/call and can face heat all the way to showdown and this is a nice choice: good showdown value and great draw to improve plus checking with the draw gets you implied odds since people assume you never have a flush. This brings me to river sizing: ship! You don;t look like having a flush the way you played so you should get Tx to call almost always, AT for sure and ofc any other flush snaps it off.
