      I bet/call here. Call because I nearly never fold an overpair at FL. ;)

      I usually bet/fold. Sometimes even check/fold (check/call if bet is small) if it's early in the session. Yeah I'm weak tight so what! :D

      Bet/fold , some draws complete , i dont think opponent will bluff there commiting almost all his stack , so if he raises we are probably behind.

      I voted for check/call. But now I realized that bet/fold costs the same and gives more information. I would Fold to a raise.

      Bet/fold

      BU limps wich is very weak, so he is probably loose/passive.
      He calls the flop wich can mean he has
      a) a straight/flush draw.
      b) made a pair or has a pocket pair
      c) overcards

      so when we bet, and he raises it's an easy fold. when passive people raise its always easy fold with mediocre hands.
      but when we bet, we would also probably get a call from pocket pairs and made pairs.

      If we check and he checks behind, we miss value from his pocketpairs, made pairs and draws.

      but if we check and he bets, you can also fold(calling can also be right, with check/fold river). stating Villian(BU) is passive so he probably doesnt bluf.

      For future: stats of villians ?

      The majority was correct here:

      Hero bet/folds. Often we still have the best hand. That's why check/fold would be too weak. Check/call is horrible because every draw will take a freecard here and we have no idea how good our hand is if he bets big on turn or river. Bet/call is not good because he would very rarely bluffraise on this board and we can be relatively sure that he has the better hand. Check/raise all-in is also disadvantageous because draws can take their freecards. In addition we will pay off stronger hands.
