      Hey L,

      Bet flop is good. In a limped pot youbasically bet for value here but general approach should be to be aggressive with any reasonably equity in such spots.

      Turn would be a vbet again imo.. big pairs raise pre, good suited connectors that smashed the board raise flop so you should expect your opponent to have A high, flushdraws, small pairs. Some small pairs beat you like 66, A5 but most don't.

      River would be a bet again in such a spot and always a bet/fold. There's no bluff raise on 4 to a straight. As played turn, I prefer check/call river too. When you check the turn you are basically expecting bluffs so leading river when turn range for betting is full of bluffs doesn't make much sense.
