      On river I would fold.

      I'd raise turn. Your initial idea must have been a float. I don't think the T should change that idea, it doesn't change anything for you, you're still behind against his potential higher pair.

      I think there is a case for calling this river bet, as you have played the bluff induce line on the turn, so he could be bluffing the river here.

      He can see your check as fear of the flush, and donk without it. I think your two pair are better than his non flush hands.

      I think he holds KQ or QJ alot here. I don't think he would bet without at least a straight.

      I think he can easily try a bluff here against a button raiser who checked turn on that board. I call the bet.


      However, I'd have definitely fired turn again. You just picked up a pair and nuts flush draw. Easy 2nd barrel IMO
