      River is an easy half pot value bet against AJ/KJ/JT. I guess if you check, check/folding is fine because the flop is so dry and he usually has a better made hand when he bets.

      There are no busted draws possible unless you think villain is capable of calling the Flop bet with a hand like KT or A:c5. You would also need villain to turn a hand like 88 into a bluff here.

      But still, I think betting is much better than check/folding or check/calling.
