      I didn't want to make the pot big on the flop, as I would probably C/F after that.
      It is very drawy though.

      turn C/C?

      I don't think I can blockbet river here, as no worse hands will call. I can't valuebet for the same reason.
      Can I C/C river? My line could look like some kind of retarded OOP float i guess, making it more likely that villain will bluff busted draws. some draws improved though(T9cc, 87cc) and villain can easily have better ace.

      I would c/c flop and turn and then decide on the river if I want to call third barrel.
      You could make 7-8$ bet on the river, it is not so likely that he´d bluffraise with busted draw and also he won´t re-raise with better ace.
      So you get free showdown and you might hold the best hand.
