      Hey Trzewia,

      Probably fine to check flop here with the intention of check/calling one street.

      Hand is borderline on turn, possibly not be quite strong enough to check/call. You could either barrel and turn your hand into a bluff or just check/fold which might be a better roption vs 46/24 guy.

      As played best option on river is likely to check/fold.
