      I'd play it the same way...but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the right way :f_biggrin:

      You could check back the turn but I kinda doubt you'd get anything if you hit any of your outs on the river if you don't bet. He seems to have a weak king, maybe AJ, and most probably a FD and you're probably good there....who knows. But imo it's well played, I think it's close between betting and checking the turn.

      Checking behind on the river is best cause you don't lose anything to a busted FD and the only hand that beats you and you might get to fold to a bet is AJ.

      Howdy,

      Betting flop and turn is fine. You can bravely bet turn because you've picked up some additional equity and he may still have FD/8x/worse Jx.

      River is close, because all the draws missed and without any reads it's hard to say how often he's capable of calling with 8x or Jx, so I don't mind just checking back.
      If you know he's calling station and sticks to any piece of hand he has, you may throw little vbet on river.

      Good luck!
