      c/r on the turn is 2 pair or better. Easy fold imo...

      Since you have option going to pot control and you can´t call c/r I think turn check is better option. That way you can call his river bet when flushdraw misses

      There is so many hands he can be c/r u with. Flush draws and bluffs. your 4 card straight u see is only completed with a 4 or 78.
      If you call, there will be 4.4 in the pot. Unless he is uber agressive and overbets the pot on the river, I think you have a hand with showdown value. Also, you would be IP once the river hit.

      IMO, its callable, but depends on the stats you have on him.

      Agreed, the hand has showdown value on blank rivers against some players after you check back the turn, but it's somewhat hard to quantify. Some guys will bet a mix of straights sets and two pairs on the river, making their value range wider, others will only bet a straight, making their value range thinner. The same guys might or might not throw out bluffs with busted spades, with widly different bet sizings at that.

      If you have no idea what to expect on the river I don't mind your line, you'll get called again by spade draws and stuff like 88/99/87 and if you're behind you'll get check/raised on the turn or they'll check the river to you a lot with two pairs because you could have the straight, so you can check back safely often.

      Hope it helps.
