      BU seems like rather passive and tight this far, so I think your line is fine. You may throw bet on river as I don't expect him to bluffraise, but he may call it with hands like Jx/9x he didn't bet turn with just because of bad card and he will still fold anything else overall so I think checking is fine.

      I think you likely can´t really c/c that flop profitable, since he is often semibluffing on the turn
      So instead of c/c I think lead is fine on that spot. Since he didn´t bet turn i think you can valuebet small yourself on the river and get calls by worse pp-s
