      I know checking on the river was an invitation to bluff but I think I was being trapped here

      Hello Rastlin1,

      Seems to be fine while he could easily even have draws there and my plan would be to Bet the turn for free showdown and reevaluate it on the river what to do.

      Best Regards.

      What about check/calling the turn? I dont know his fold to flop cbet stat, but he could easily float us here w AJ/KJ/J9/PPs etc., while there is not many worse hands that could call our turn barrel.
      Other line would maybe not cbetting at all, and try to get to showdown / inducing bluffs, but we need a villain w specific tendencies for that i guess.

      Usually I would turn my hand into bluff-catcher right on the flop with Check/Call rather than on the turn where it will be much more difficult to Call turn & river.
