      I don't think that board is too drawy. Only hand I'm worried about protection is JT, and I think it's unlikely here.

      I'd check behind on the turn.

      If he bets the river I'm putting him all-in, even with a weaker K or a smaller pair, he's getting good odds to call. If you're up against a set, nothing you can do about it.

      If he checks the river, valuebet.

      he would not limp/call raise from EP with JT. I also don´t think protection is needed here. Check behind for pot control .

      Can´t understand that:D Check behind and give him free card to hit his 5-outer or 3-outer. Don't need to pot control here, since he is middle stack and I would call anyway his river shove. The question is, do I need to play tricky to get more money out of him with my top pair. I think that I could bet 6$, which he might call with Kx, Qx, hoping to hit his twopair/trips. Had just too many suckouts on the river, that I really don't want to play that hand tricky, and if he limped in with JT, don´'t want him to give odds to call my turn bet.

      If he has Qx or a smaller PP. Then raising the turn will probably scare him, give him the chance to bluff into you or/and pay you off with weaker hands, he's probably drawing almost dead anyway.

      And as you said, since he's midstacked, you're going to get all-in anyway. But when you bet turn, most of the time you get all-in he's gonna have the best hand.

      I believe that he may call my all-in bet with KJ, KT, QJ. Anyway still think that betting on the turn is better than checking behind, cause when scare card comes and he pushes I will curse myself why I checked behind, making a crying call and curse again:D

      c/c Turn is fine. Against a station I'd shove, but you get more value by c/c and value betting the river.
