      Once the flush draw came on the river, should I just have check/called?

      Probably more like check/folded, you only have QQ on AJT5, unless he's betting anything when you check to him you're probably behind his river betting range, so check/calling is worse than bet/folding, and i think a river valuebet is too thin on that board even if he's very loose passive. At least it shouldn't be so big since it's more like a blockbet, maybe $0.8 or something. You can often confuse those passive players enough even if you minbet so that they don't raise with worse than a flush if you don't feel like check/folding, but i'd definitely not bet 2/3 pot.

      Hope it helps.
