      I'd play just as you did and note down what he's doing that with. I guess he could be ch/minraising the nuts, but also draws and pair+draws.

      Now, how about betting T again to extract money from draws and getting a free river? I'd consider that an alternative line to check T / call R, which would work if you think he won't likely ch/r T again.
