      I think betting on the flop is ok, but you don't have to... it might cross villain's mind that you might be slow playing on a dry board. Also, villain's fold to cbet comes in handy here. I wouldn't fire a 2nd barrel on the turn... just check/fold.

      You can likely 3bet a little more preflop since you are both deep and you will be OOP.

      Since you're almost 170bb you can 4x it preflop out of position, both to build a bigger pot for when you hit and to discourage him from messing with you in position by giving him a worse price on a call.

      History and stats like fold to cbet% are useful on the flop, ask yourself whether you can get him off a pocket pair and/or whiffed overcards on such an innocuous board. If you think you can c-betting is fine, if you don't then maybe plain check/folding is better unless you want to commit to barreling more streets.

      The turn card is mostly bad for your hand and won't scare anybody off, so unless you c-bet the flop with the intention of betting most turn cards because you think he's peeling the first bet with overs , i think you should just give it up at that point.

      Folding the river is best.

      Hope it helps.
