      I was not betting on the flop because i was afraid that my opponents will fold, although on the flop it's a possible flush draw so i am not sure about my play here.
      I think i played ok on the turn and river.

      Altought opponent on NL2 don`t see paterns , get used to c-bet your mosters too. You need to balance your lines , if you check monsters and bet mediocre hands , good opponents will catch up to that and play accordingly.

      Even more , that flop is a must bet with the flush draw and even some A3 A5 straight draw out there. I would go 3/4 pot flop, 3/4 turn and push river

      ^ what he said again :P

      It is ESSENTIAL that you bet this flop, for several reasons
      - protection
      - balancing
      - value

      Preflop: OK.
      Flop: It's very marginal to check here and if you are checking then you have to do that Check/Raise! I don't like your Check/Call here, you are just giving him free cards and getting his cheap flushdraw if he is drawing. I'd prefer to Bet here myself.
      Turn: Bet turn, 3/4 as mentioned because of a way too drawy board and also to extract more value from the villain.
      River: Shove.
