The villain here is unknown. His 4x opening UTG looks strong. His flop and turn calls make me think that he has a piece of the board in someway. Possibly a flush draw; there are now 2 flush draws on the turn. But he might be reluctant to fold KK or QQ, which I dominate. JJ makes a set on the river. He could be slow playing TT from the flop, not to mention 99. Diamond draw comes in on river. KQ combinations are there with KQ diamonds being nuts. It seems to me that there are too many good combinations that beat me, that he could make hero call with if I bet the river: Like AT or AJ. On the other hand, this is 2NL, he may be crushing me with 92o...

Can I bet for thin value here, or should I check back? He did play passively post flop.

It's very close but against an unknown who takes such a passive postflop line I feel like we can still bet/fold here against some Ax.

As a standard I would 3-bet him preflop, flatting in that position with so many people still to come can be a little problematic.
