      River: ($10.74) 5 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Played 3.5h session. Now i obviously have stats on them, but when the hand was played information was limited. Seemed that there are no agro guys behind me so calling seemed safe.
      If there are agro guys behind squeezing becomes a better option?

      We cant ask for better flop. I decided to call 2 streets in this case. I'm not sure thats the best option given how strong hand we got.

      Can we go for thin value bet on river or we shouldnt given the board texture?

      Hello,

      Preflop call looks good as there is a fish in the hand.
      If there were squeeze-happy guys behind us, I would consider folding.

      Flop could be a raise as well to put his TP/OP on pressure as I doubt he will be able to call with those plus we still have decent equity with our strong draw.

      Turn call looks okay as we are IP.

      As played, what worse do you expect to get called from? I would just check back considering all the draws missed.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Not much worse can call us. And i dont expect that he can have worse here. He wasnt going out of line so checking back seems fine.

      That's right.
      I don't see worse calling and he might go for a check/call with something like AA because the draws missed.
