      My idea turn was...or i bet twice or check behind down. Agree? He dont fold much on the flop when he checks, thats why i didnt bet there, even more in a board were i expect him to cbet a lot for bluff. But when he checks again on the turn i put him in some marginal holding..

      I would just check down with 44 here on a blank turn. I suppose on this King turn we should be more inclined to turn our hand into a bluff here - We beat fewer hands now and when he double checks I think he is weak when you mentioned.

      I think when he double checks here, he may have some sort of mid pocket pair, maybe JJ slowplaying, or a weak JX hand which wants to go for one street on the River. Betting the Turn is fine, we can try folding out some 99/88/77 type of hands. River improves TT, but now we can rep KT/AQ as well and he should be folding all those 99-77 type of hands.

      I think it all boils down to how he plays 77-99 here. If he will often check F c/c T c/f R, then a bet on the T and R makes more sense. If villain plays his mid pairs differently (by betting Flop or just c/folding immediately on the Turn), then your line is not good.

      In general I think without too much of an idea on how many streets to bet, I think it should be fine to just check down pocket pairs by default as they tend to have a tiny bit of showdown value vs some worse hands like Ace highs even on boards with 2 high cards.
