      Depends on villain really, most players would go away with everything that's worse than your hand seeing two overcards on board, except maybe if they have some kind of OESD or over+gutshot type of hand.

      C-betting kind of makes sense still, because if you're ahead and you check to a guy who looks very aggressive so far, it's possible he'd just blindly fire 3 streets into you and take you off the best hand, you can't seriously consider calling down without more history so your c-bet is mostly to take the pot down right there if possible.

      I don't mind calling down on later streets, it's cheap, you'll see villains just randomly bet small with lower pocket pairs there just because you checked and they have no idea what else to do. Plus that guy has position on you for most hands and it looks like he'll get involved with you a decent amount, so if you can get a sense of what he's doing for cheap while still being good sometimes it's probably worth the small price.

      Hope it helps.
