      I know I should have bet the flop a bit more. Wasn't sure what to make of the turn bet and the MP call, so I just called. At this point I'm putting the BB on a flush draw or maybe a 9 and MP on a weaker ace. I just checked behind on the river, which is the safe play. In hindsight, I think I could have got more value out of the river, if not the turn in the long run by bet/folding on the river or raisse/folding the turn.
