    It is $5.50 MTT with less then 200 runners. 10mins regular blind structure and 3000 starting stack. It's a bit loose preflop open but I played this hand as everyone on my table was playing tight you can see from the stats. I think it was 100% a check on the turn ? What should I do on river?

    The preflop open is certainly on the loose side but I think it's OK.

    As played I think the river is a pretty easy fold especially vs a villain who hasn't exactly been active so far...

    I think the turn is the main decision point in this hand. Your hand probably isn't strong enough to get three streets of value from worse hands, especially having had fairly dry flop. Betting allows us to get raised off our marginal made hand but more importantly, makes it more costly for us to make our big draw.

    So I'd rather check the turn, see a river when we can either call a bet to bluff catch or if he checks, then we can make a thin value bet to target some worse Kx or maybe stuff like A9 or TT. And of course if we hit our flush, we can then raise his river bet!
