Unless you flop trips or a straight check-fold post-flop

I think the check on the river could also maybe have been a small bet, I think you will get value from any ace or pocket pair at this level. If a re-raise comes in you can comfortably fold assuming they have a 6.

I actually like the idea of leading the flop here with two pair.. BUT... the bet has to be a standard value bet. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With 2 opps, I need to bet 463.

When the opp calls the flop bet, I'm check/folding every street after, unless my hand improves. When I hit the bottom end of a full house on the river, I'm going to make a thin value bet of between 1/3 and 1/2 pot.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
