Villain is 23/5/2.4 over 92 hands and hasn't stepped out of line too much. Is this a bit weak or am I ok in slowing down and not wanting to play for stacks being this deep on this board?

I think checking the turn here is fine. 4 to a straight and possible flush on board is certainly reason to slow down with a set. I'm curious as to what your villain had here that he was willing to call your river bet that he didn't bet himself.

Checking the turn is standard. You have plenty of outs to redraw and don't want to get pushed off your hand.

Aside from the flop raise (I like to $5+; way too many draws out there), I think you played this fine.

i raise more on flop, which means betting more on river. turn check is good.

I think betting anything less than all-in on the river is a considerable mistake.

Villain had 66 in this case for the lower boat. Next time I will make sure to pump it up more on the flop to charge draws a bit more.

Even though it's $35 into an $11 pot, I agree. Our villain has to be pretty strong here to call any bet with such a scary board, so if he'll call a pot sized bet he's pretty likely to call an all-in as well.

Right. Even if he'll fold twice as often, it's still a very +EV play. To the point where calling a raise with 7-2o from the small blind is a better play than not shoving here.
