      Hi.

      I think the river call is fine. His range here is super narrow once the river brings a 4-straight. I think he would be more likely to take a c/c line with QX. Since his value range is way narrower, we have an easier call here.

      Thanks.

      I think both options are close

      Advantages of betting
      -Don't give free cards (TT is vulnerable here)
      -Thin value
      -Easier to hand-read later on

      Advantages of checking
      -Under-represent our hand
      -Potcontrol, only 2 streets left after checking Turn
      -Avoid facing raises

      Against a more passive opponent who calls really loosely with some Ace highs and all draws + pairs, I would just bet the Flop immediately.

      Against a more aggro opponent who will bluff raise the Flop quite a bit, and also bluff when checked to a lot more often, checking makes more sense.
