This seems quite a wide check raise with only a backdoor straight draw. Turn size is really small so it's quite an odd line and you have no hearts in your hand to block flush draws. On the river are you representing a 7 a boat or flush? Anyway it gets the job done

Preflop is okay, we should be calling strong combos and mixing our strategy between 3-betting and flatting.
OTF I like our raise for in situations like this BB will have some combos of 98, 95s, 85s, also half of the pocket pairs combos that also could’ve flattened preflop: 55, 88 and 99.
We also hold tons of combos of straight draws as bluffs. Our actual hand has some equity for the turn so I’m on board of raising flop when we call versus CO and BU.
OTT we must continue our flop story and double barrel. I will go for 1/2 pot here or a bit more since it has opened a line for a flush of hearts and we own none of these combos.
We could be betting more OTT for when it completes a flush and we are still bluffing (since our hand has lost its showdown value), we can easily represent it.
OTR we continue betting and when villain raises we easily fold.
I just don’t think we told a pretty good story with our turn bet: which hands would’ve raised flop and bet so small OTT when it opens a flush liner?
