      With the given history I think you played it nice.He is obviously not donking to fold to a raise, and knows that the 4th on the turn is a terrible card to bluff at.Stacks are deepish and if you think he is capable of making a move on a draw on the turn, the check behind is the best option.
      His betsize is perfect for a bluffbet,putting him on a draw the whole way Im going to make a hero call with third pair.If you dont like high variance though you should gather info and wait for a better spot(such will come as he is to your immediate right.

      Best regards,

      Thanks for great arguments! My point for foldign river is that after I smooth call flop and check behind turn he must be putting me on a hand with showdown value for sure, I can play middle pairs, jack sometimes this way too, so he realises I will be calling them on the river as I went for turn pot control, with draws I play more agressively obviously. So he won't bluff river, in my opinion.

      He is very often goign to c/r turn given our history, I think he has a hand here most of the times.
