Just check/call the turn. There's a lot of air in his range, and he'll fire on a lot of rivers when checked to again. Blind vs. button, we should be bluff catching pretty hard.

Why the check/raise? If he's calling that raise, he's got you beat, and if not, you were ahead anyway.
Plus it's not like you fear a heart on the river.

I don't mind a check-call on the flop. The board hits our opponents' range pretty hard, and getting raised here with TP + BDFD sucks. And even if he missed, he'll be tempted to fire at it with air since it looks like we whiffed with overcards. Without the BDFD, betting is fine.
OTT, check-call. Not sure why you're check-raising. He folds out all his air and continues with his strong hands. We bet for value or as a bluff. We're not getting value from worse or getting a better hand to fold (except maybe JJ-QQ).
