      Villain is 15/11 over 56 hands.

      Pre flop and flop play is fine I think, or can you make an argument for checking back the flop? Personally I decided to bet anyway because I had position and with the gutshot + overcards had decent equity even if he would have called anyway.

      When he checks both the turn and river, can we consider making a bet on the river? It's pretty clear he doesn't have a straight or flush, but perhaps he can fold some pairs or busted draws like Tx/8x?

      I don't really mind much betting the flop here as this guy is expected to play pretty straight forward - he's going to fold 22-55, AT+, KQ and stuff like this.

      Once we get called, checking down looks reasonable. I don't think we have enough fold equity to justify a bet neither on turn or river, so going to showdown is fine.
