      If you intend to check/call river then you should have bet yourself if villain is likely to check behind with a weaker made-hand as otherwise you allow villain to win most when ahead and lose least when behind. Charge AX etc full-price.

      and if he RR me on the river I'm nowhere. He may have some draw and the turn complete this draw. If I check the 5 on the river he make check behind his week flush or something like that. If I bet on the river and he shoves I'm absolutely dead. And if I check/call he may bet some other hands that I'm ahead. Like week ace or busted strait draw with pair of sevens

      I like your line but I prefer blockbetting the river because if he pot bets me I have no idea where I am.

      Not quite nowhere. Since a bluff-raise is unlikely a fold seems reasonable. By betting the river though you do not lose value versus Ax. If you intend check/calling the river you lose roughly the same when behind but win more when ahead. By checking the river you lose value for your hand.

      hi
      if you check river here you have to check fold .
      most of the times he will check behind worst hands and he will bet just better and you will pay him off if you call
      i prefer blockbeting a bit over 1/2 pot because he will call with all worst aces that otherwise will check behind . it is realy realy unlikely for people at this limit to raise the river as a bluff
