      villain playing 17/13 through 215 hands
      fold to 3b 4/4, 3 AF

      villain is super straightforward and opens co 22% (37 hands)

      flop could be a give up, but i have some backdoors so decided to cbet.

      after flop, how should we go about playing turn/river.

      bet turn or check behind?

      Flop: Seems pretty standard

      Turn: I would usually bet here vs a looser opponent. You do rep so many draws here when you barrel this coordinating turn card which improves KT/QT/KQ.

      Vs a tighter opponent I think you should check the Turn and call the River. A fold is only appropriate if you are very sure that he's never bluffing or floating the Flop with AQ. You also have J which helps your case here in bluff catching the River.
