      I assume you didn't c-bet the flop because you didn't think that guy would fold much of anything. If he's decent it's fair to assume that his range here is most likely 88+ maybe AQ, and only AQ is folding on that flop. If he was bad and calling with lots of broadways in that spot you should c-bet the flop.

      In this case, since the turn didn't change anything, you can't expect him to fold anything on the turn that he wouldn't have folded on the flop. Maybe you just want to build the pot for your OESD, but with 8 outs only (all clean tho, he can't really have a flush draw himself given his range), playing fit or fold is not gonna be enough to show a profit with no fold equity on the turn, as he won't go to the felt with every overpair he has when you hit. Quite the opposite in fact. So if you're betting, you plan on firing some rivers as a bluff as well, especially the heart redraw. He can't put you on the spade draw (you would have bet the flop with that), but he's gonna fold most of his range if you fire again on a heart river. Since you don't have showdown value, this is a decent option.

      Hope it helps.
