      villain's range is probably too strong for this bluff to work often enough

      I would fold this.
      What exactly are you representing here. If you had a straight, you would of raised the flop.
      I understand you're probably trying to balance some theoretically correct range with bluffs here, but my advice would be just stick to the basics.
      Leave the fancy play for higher limits.

      Usually with pair + draw you would tend to play those more passively since you have showdown value, and he might try to rep your draw on the river.

      Checkjam here is good if you think you can fold out some AX/KK/QX hands that bet the turn. But I would prefer a checkjam with a hand like KdTd
