I think you´re talking about this
The situation F Paulsson told is very similar to the first point in my thread. The only difference is that in my thread i talked about betting in the river when you´re first to act, but in this case your opponent checked so it´s similar and you can apply the same strategie.
As colin said, i think you would get called no matter what, because at those stakes you´ll see a lot of calling stations calling you down to the river. So in my opinion if you had bet your opponent would have called with his 3s (i´m almost 96.4% sure of that), but that doesn´t mean that you made the wrong play. His bet-call on the flop and check-call on the turn may be a sign of either weakness (low pair or a draw) or strength (in relation to your 7s), so a check in the river is the best option, because as Paulsson said (and as you can see in my thread) there isn´t any value in betting at that point.
