      Villian 20/10 with 3-bet 7%. No 4-bet history but looking again at it flatting the 4-bet looks really strong - so should I even bet turn?

      yes -- I don't see much value in betting the turn. Even if he is overplaying hands like AK or AQ, TT or QQ by calling your 4bet, he has still hit.

      We have some (smallish) showdown value but we can be sure no worse hand will call us on the flop or turn. That said, I think if you are going to bet this you may as well bet at least 1/2 pot (your bet size looks like you suspect you are behind and want to find out).

      I think your hand is a little easier to play if you b/f flop, since he really has to have there flushdraw or Ax to continue a lot of times and if he has smt like Qx I really doubt he is going to shove that hand
      As played: I´d like c/c turn and c/f river
      Right now he has a lot more reason to shove with flushdraws, since if you checked flop then you don´t most of the times have there Ax and he can bluff you out of your hand
