So basically on the turn, we're even more WA/WB than we were on the flop.
If this guy's AF was like 1, then we could make a decent case for flipping out a bet to make overcards pay to outdraw us, but it wouldn't be a big one since we're not expecting to be called by worse unless our image is really bad.
This is what I don't understand.
In my experience, an aggressive player doesn't check when he has the better hand.
How many hands have you shown down to be the better hand when playing against villian(stats irrelevant)?
IMO, If you two have gone HU on more than 1 occasion with you being the clear winner in the end, then I think you might have made a mistake of not betting the turn, I think a $32 bet on the turn would have put you in a better position to fold on the river to any bet he might have made and saved yourself $12.
Most likely villian would have folded as most aggressors do when faced with aggression.
Just my opinion though and I know most if not all might disaggree with me.
