      Pre-Flop: 2:spade: 2:diamond: dealt to Hero (MP2)
      UTG folds, UTG+1 calls $0.10, MP1 folds, Hero calls $0.10, 2 folds, SB calls $0.05, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.40) 2:club: 9:club: 6:club: (4 Players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB folds, BB calls $0.50, UTG+1 calls $0.50

      River: ($4.70) 7:heart: (2 Players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.50, BB raises to $5.30 and is All-In, Hero calls $2.80

      I'm not posting what he has but it's pretty obvious. Sad how I get suckered by a donkey who doesn't raise flop or turn and checks river.

      Just check river here, or do I value bet here against a decent player?

      You played it right... it's just bad luck.

      The only thing I'd think about is what hand is going to call your bet on the river. Your asking him to call half of his remaining stack with that river bet, so how strong does he have to be to call that bet and yet have a weaker hand than yours. If you've seen him pay off on the river with weaker hands, despite what's on the board, that's fine (i.e. you've identified him as a clown :D ).

      I'd definitely make a note of his play though. You can make a lot of money off him down the line if he plays his strong hands like that. He's basically given you an invitation to outdraw him on turn and river.

      On NL10, I'm pretty sure villain would call with weaker hands.

      I absolutely agree, but I'd just want to have an indication of it beforehand, is all.
