      Hi,

      It's one of the nicest board you will see for 66 with only one OC on board.
      I'd bet that flop to protect my hand and get value from the draws.

      As played I like the turn call , taking my marginal hand to SD , and turning it into a bluff catcher on the river.

      Before you bet you need to know why you are betting. The two basic options are value and bluff.
      Value betting is like is pretty much useless since no worser hands will call a that bet (even 33 can get away)
      Bluff betting is almost useless two since You hardly getting him to lay down a better hand. (As you see he c/c 88)

      So when there is no point in betting I'd just check it and take my SD hope to be in front a decent number of times.

      good luck.
