      You could either cbet or give up with 55. With a better pocket pair like TT/JJ/99/88 I would prefer checking here. When you bet here with 55 you can fold out stronger pocket pairs like JJ-66.

      It's close though, but 22/44 is closer to a bet, and the higher pocket pairs are closer to a check. He also folds fairly often to cbets at 55% so that makes betting ok.

      Rest of the hand is standard once you bet. You are not beating any hand on the River so you can't really call, and the Turn is a really bad card to bluff at cos a Queen is never folding.
