I think most villians wouls let me know if they had 2pr+ by now with all the draws out there. He could possibly have AQ but I think it unlikely. If he is on the flush draw I'm not getting any more value on the river with a bet and prob only get called by hands that beat me. A check could induce a bet by a busted draw.
Also villian didn't look to comfortable calling the turn.
I should have put this in my OP but was a little tired when I posted. Sry
Hate this thought process. Stop thinking things are standard and analyze more closely whether a bet is good. Now it is hard to tell from 1 hand but this guy seems super loose passive and very reluctant to fold. That makes cbetting against 1 other player pretty dubious.
I mean, against people who peel flop light and then fold on turn and river too much it is different but this guy called with 3rd or 4th pair on the turn in the 1 hand you mention. Of course there are benefits to c betting but against people who you expect to play straightforward I think it would be better to check flop and play perfectly on future streets.
