Check, you just got counterfeited, take it down if he was on the straight/flush draw (he wont call if you bet anyway). There is zero value in betting here.

Yuck. I'm used to seeing two pair counterfeited, but a set on the flop getting counterfeited? That's nasty.

An alternative might be a blocking bet of 320 to reduce the chance to get bluffed out of the pot by a busted draw.

we're in position and he already checked to us, yo

i mean, there's a small chance he's got Axs and he'll call down a small bet with the A but that's so thin. i really only bring it up because it's the only instance where you could even hope to get a tiny amount of value by betting here. most likely he has a T or missed draw. and if he goes crazy and decides to check-raise his missed draw or some sort of air, you end up having to fold. jus' check 'er down.

He's not been counterfeited. Counterfeited is where you've got a pair, but 2 pairs on board means your pair no longer counts as it's beaten by the board. He still has a Full House here, which beats the board.

Re OP, there's no predicament, you check to see if you are winning. You'll only realistically get called by Q or 10. Actually to save me typing more, what Combuboom said ^^^^^

Gross.

Put another vote in the just check it camp - everyone else has said it, pretty much.

Shove the turn, a Queen is calling you.

Check behind on the river, nasty.

check, the only reason that he will call/raise is if he has a hand, otherwise he'll fold. No value in betting IMO.
