      Hey Dublinmatt,

      With short guys in the blinds it's probably better to open-raise the button a little smaller with a suited-connector.

      Flop cbet is fine.

      I think turn cbet is decent. Hand is a little weak to check back, but you turn additional equity so fine to keep barreling. Not impossible you get called by worse though.

      Think it's fine to just give up on river with no additional info on opponent. Your pair will be good a small percentage of the time.
