      On the Flop, I think both checking and betting are fine. A few things to think about...

      How often will your opponent bet when checked to? The more he bets, the more we rather check
      How often will your opponent raise a cbet? The more he raises, the more we want to bet monsters and check medium strength hands like the one here
      How vulnerable is our hand? The more vulnerable it is, the more we prefer to bet right away, PROVIDED WE KNOW WE CAN VALUE BET (on average, we get called by worse hands). With 9 pair, there are 5 overcards in the deck. But if you said you wanted to check QQ on a KXX board, then there is only one bad card in the deck (the Ace) and QQ here would be less vulnerable

      As played, I think villain has Ace high mostly, or maybe 88. I think your bet size is probably fine, maybe you can bet smaller on River cos I think it's a little optimistic to get Ace high to call for that amount.
