      Nothing wrong with your line really, once he pots it if we want to continue we need to put him on a bluff and either think he's not gonna bluff the river or be willing to call a river shove, both of which are probably pushing it a bit too far for a small pot without better reads.

      That said I would consider making another ~1/2 pot bet on the turn, it's not that likely he has Ax since there are two on board and he could have some 9x that he won't fold to another bet. It also prevents him from betting huge with some random floats that we can't anticipate and forcing us to fold the best hand. It might put you on sticky situations on the river if it just delays his floats or if he merges his whole range into nonsensical bets on the river when you check, but it's probably worth the try nonetheless.

      Hope it helps.
