Well, yeah. Virtually nothing that's beating you is going to let you see a "cheap showdown" considering he has not much more than a half pot bet left with two more betting rounds to go. You are however letting all kinds of hands you are beating off the hook to either see a cheap showdown or outdraw your hand. Drunk guy with 2nd pair, 3rd pair, a gutshot, a heart, or any combination thereof is going to be pretty interested in seeing that river heh.
If he does check the river your hand is probably best, in which case it was likely best on the turn as well. That would have been the street to bet imo, and your decision otr as played depends on your reasoning for letting the turn check through. That's why I asked.
