Villain is a reg playing pretty solid, preflop.
I feel that he plays passive postflop, thats why I called his open prelfop. I felt i could take the pot easily when he misses. I've been doing that a few times. During this session

I call his standard c-bet just to take the pot down on the turn. I also have a pair and backdoor flush, that may be good.
He checked, I was thinking an overpair wouldn't really check behind, so I fire a bullet expecting to take it down. But he called
He checked again. Checking 2 streets seems weak, I decided to barrel almost pot to get him to fold 77 or 55.
What do you think?

Well If i had an overpair and I think that you are willing to bluff turn and river I would def check. Also if your plan of attack was to take it on later streets, why not 3 bet pre?

I understand the idea of betting here, if he calls and shows 77 I would change strategy though.
