      I think 66 is strong enough hand to b/c yourself, since you should protect your hand against random overcards that he might have.
      I would liked inducing bluff a lot more if you have KK on Axx board, since then there can´t be no more scare cards for you

      best regards,

      I know that the sample size is not too big but he is quite likely not to be a very passive guy.

      Having said that, is his betting range, once I check the flop, not significantly wider than his calling range once I bet? If I bet the bottom part of the range that he is calling/pushing with consists some A high hands maybe some K high hands and all underpairs at best, but no worse. If I check, however, he is extremely more likely to be betting/pushing all the mentioned hands (we do not even know if he is calling with A high or K high if we bet) + all other overcards.

      Taking that into consideration, why is it better to protect? Or is my thought process a bit off?

      Vs his stack I would most likely still Bet/Call as well myself rather than Check. Of course I wouldn't mind even Checking but can you be sure that he bets every time you Check into him? Then of course we plan to Check/Shove.

      If we had something like pair of tens or whatsoever then I wouldn't even mind the Check and let him bluff but your 66 is still pretty vulnerable.
