      i like how you played the hand.
      turn barrel makes sense, you still got TPTK and you still want to defend against some drawing hands, so a turn bet makes sense.
      against such a passive player i really like the blockbet.
      because if he raises you you can easily fold your hand.
      if such a guy raises you on the river you can be sure he got you beat.
      but there are still some hands he might call a bet with.
      like KT, A9, T8, T7 or stuff like that.
      so here a blockbet makes sense.
      you get some value out of some weaker made hands, and you can be SURE that if he has a weak made hand he will call and not raise you
      and if he rasies you you have an easy fold.
