      Preflop: Great, checking is better than raising cos I think it's unlikely you can get it heads up unless you make a really huge raise and i don't want to bloat the pot OOP with a weak hand.

      Flop: C/C is standard, I don't think I want to raise and try folding out draws or AX.

      Turn: Given bet size I think you should call again for sure.

      River: I think if you want to lead here you can bet 4 or 4.50. Other than that, the plan seems fine. I agree that you should bet/fold here unless you think he gets out of line. I see no reason for him to raise an Ace, and I see no reason for him to raise a worse hand for value or bluff you.
