      Hello,

      Seems to be fine, except bet the river also for value, he will very often check behind weaker hands, like one pair, two pair type of hands.

      Best regards,

      But he didnt play it like 2pair, looks to me like a busted flush, so I check river hoping for a bluff. Also 2pair could bet river figuring he has me beat.

      You have to bet the river. You'll lose a lot of value in the long run waiting for him to bluff, plus he will check behind a lot of one pair type of hands that he will call a bet with.
