[NL2-NL10] NL4 6max straight on board river decision

      I almost checked the flop because its pretty obv the board hasn't hit me here but heads up I think I need to bet IP. It's hard for me to put him on a straight that's better than the board so what's the optimal river play here?

      Looking at it again I wonder if I should have bet the turn because it's easier for me to rep the A given I raised preflop, but then I need to consider his flop calling range, which includes a lot of hands that include a 6.

      I would check this flop.
      I don't expect much folds here, also we have no backdoors and we are at the bottom of our range so we don't need to be fighting for every pot.

      As played, I would give up turn and river.
