      Cbet or check behind ? What´s the best play here ? I mean, he is never calling with worse here. And only folding weaker hands such as 77-QQ.

      Hello acceleration123,

      Since he may still pay you with weaker PPs later on I am even considering often times here Checking behind than betting it.

      Best regards.

      Ok and what line should I take after that ?
      If he checks the turn again I think I can bet easily, but what if he bets the turn ? Should I just call and try to get cheap showdown ?

      Yep, likely if he Checks then Bet and if he bets then you can still Call unless he is a very passive opponent and who doesn't bet without a hand.
