      Check/folding is good, the board is extremely ugly when you're up against a random calling range preflop+flop.

      Against an unknown, even if he seems somewhat bad because he doesn't rebuy to 100bb, i think this would be extremely dicey to go for a small bet/fold on a 4-flush 4-straight board because he easily could have you smoked. Plus given the stack sizes in relation to the pot you would then get very good pot odds to call a shove and yet you would almost never be good in that spot when he raises.

      Check/calling would be even worse in my opinion, he will likely check behind with anything that's not a flush, or at the very least a straight, unless he's nuts.

      We won't even bother talking about bet/calling i don't think, i can't even imaging a player i would do that against, he would have to be a positively gigantic calling station or a batshit insane floating machine. Certainly not an unknown.

      To me : c/f >>>> b/f >>>>>>>> c/c >> b/c

      I think no worse hand would call your river bet, Tx might fold, but since board is so drawy, c/f is likely better against unknown who doesn´t make many moves
