      No clue, who is that guy?

      Against some players you're already beat when they decide to c-bet such a flop while you'd be good more often than not on something J52r, against others who c-bet too much the flop texture doesn't change their range much so calling the flop for value because we're ahead is fine, provided they don't barrel like crazy in which case we don't really have enough "showdown value".

      On the turn i think we're actually betting with the best hand quite often, he'd have bet again a better hand himself most of the time and i don't expect any better hand to fold at that point, so we're basically betting to take down the pot and prevent 6-outers from getting there. It's dicey against tricky players that might c/r or against nits who will even start check/calling turn & river with overpairs, but against most i'm fine with it.

      Hope it helps.
