Too early for any real reads. I might go with a pot sized bet and see what he does.

I dont have any reads but im kinda geting worried about my image,since i have played allmost all the hands up this point(about 6-7hands).
So i can see people traping me if i keep it up.

I probably fire a double barrel and evaluate after he makes his move.

hmm...It would be safe to check here. But me personally, I make that bet and have him fold or put me into a huge decision.

That is a bad board for you. There are all kind of things that beat you. If you check though you show weakness. He may bet the river no matter what just because you checked. What do you do then? I like a 1/2 pot bet here. If he raises it's an easy fold. If he calls and checks the river I would probably just check behind figuring that anything that calls me beats me.

i would check the turn as well. he's obviously going to call you to the river. you might as well try to keep as much control of the pot as you can. pray the river is a blank.

check to keep the pot small and to prevent a possible check raise. .

OK this is a split vote-some whant to check and some whant a 1/2 bet size.
I played this safe/weak and checked behind and then this terrible/great river comes

If you feel that your opponent in a good and observant opponent here then I think a check is fine to prevent a trap play on his part. If not then there is no reason not to bet out, you were called and he checked twice which can mean he has a monster or was on a draw. He has two opportunities to bet and passed on them both. As it is still early I bet out here and fully expect the villian to fold and call a shove expecting to see two pair here a lot of the time.
