      Looks fine to me. Maybe bet less on river, like half of the pot (after 3 checks he most likely holds some kind of draw or pair). In case of draw you always can go allin in case of checkraise on river.

      I would bet turn. Board is really drawey - it doesn't make sense to wait till the river when all the draws miss to try get value. River can also be a scare card for his worse made hands.

      This. If you find a valuebet on the river as played, you should find it on the turn too, as it's actually a better spot. If you don't, you're most likely trying to pot control way too often, especially against seemingly loose-passive calling stations against whom it's a big mistake to not valuebet in obviously +ev spots.


      Hope it helps.
