      i think i would give up on the turn.
      SB check/call your flop bet indicates that he has interest in the pot, and on a monotone board, people usually only call if they already have strong made hands, or going for the flush draw.

      i dont think he's going to fold to your 2nd barrel; unless he's holding on to top pair, 2 pair or trips, which would probably take alot to get him off this non flush hand. not worth the investment, i'd say check and usually if villian have no hands better than a flush, we may get a freeshowdown

      agree check back turn, fold river
      he is not going to fold there too many better hands and never gonna call with worse hands
      If he doesn´t have spade he would also often check river
      And also he had to call some hand on the flop and it is very likely he had there flushdraw
