I wouldn't do too much different here.

Flush draw got there on river so I think shoving would be pretty bad. He was calling with something and if it was the flush draw then it just got there and we value own ourselves.

Reads would be handy.

Bhoy is right - whether to bet this for value is very villain dependent.

You post a lot of hands here and have said you 4-table Zoom - you really should be taking notes and getting some basic reads on some of your villains. I think if you're serious about trying to take shots at 10NL, at least take a trial of Poker Tracker or Hold 'em Manager and see if you like the HUD. If not, you should still be able to take some basic notes about if they are calling station, if they are super loose, if they like to bluff often etc.

I like your actions on all streets. I think betting pot is probably a bit large against an unknown but if you think he's going to call it anyway, then the bigger the better!

I would just check the river unless I knew my opponent was a calling station. I doubt that much Ax will call three huge barrels, he might play AK like this I suppose. You will get calls from two pair/44, but I think these holdings would've raise at some point because of the wet board and the fact your range looks an awful lot like AK.

Therefore I think is range is weighted towards draws, the 8 completed 75 straight draw and obviously the flush draw, so just check and see what happens.

In the end you went for the value bet and got paid - well done! Like bhoy and I said, this is a villain dependent play.
