      I'd bet against a calling station all the way with top pair decent kicker on this board.

      I'd prefer to checkbehind on the turn and call that riverbet. It's very unlikely he's on a draw you need protection against, so pot control is the answer I think.
      If he had K8, it's just unlucky, but you can't really protect against a double pair draw :D

      Pot-control only applies versus a calling station when the board is VERY scary. Go for value close to 100% of the time. nttflox is spot-on with his comment.

      These jokers who call just about every c-bet also need to be second barrelled relatively often (especially IP) since the second bet is so often for value even with an unimproved big ace. High variance and high profit.

      Againt a regular player, I check behind the turn. Against a station, bet/folding is fine. nh
