Autoprofit Situation on 4 heart board

Watched a video last night where there was an autoprofit situation. While reviewing this hand, I think I may have missed one on the river.

1/2 Live game -- 7 handed (effective stacks about 250)
I'm MP with :Jd :Jc
UTG folds, I raise 8, HJ call, LJ call, BB call
F: :Th :7s :5h (pot 33)
BB checks, I b15, LJ call
T: :9h (pot 63)
I b25, LJ call
R: :3h (pot 113)
We both check
LJ showed :Ts :9s

LJ is a reg. He had about 400+ when I sat down, but he's been giving money back by limping/calling PF then folding. He has shown some aggression, but only if he had strong hands (sets+) or had the initiative.

I worked through range analysis. Based on my estimation of his PF range, I think he gets to the river with these combos:
Nut Flush – 8
2nd Nut Flush – 3
Weak Flush – 2
Set – 10
Two Pair -13

Of course, this analysis assumes he's calling flop and turn with his made hands and draws. If I bet the river, I assume that two pair would fold. That's 13/36 combos, or about 1/3 hands. A 1/2 pot bet should be autoprofit, correct? This autoprofit situation becomes even better if I change the assumptions of his range. So if I think he's going to raise 2 pair and sets on the flop, then two pair hands represent 11/25 hands. It seems like fold equity increases more if I think he would have raised nut flush draws.

Was this an autoprofit situation that I missed? And if so, what would have been a good size to bet? I think 75 would be large enough to get two pair to actually fold, yet it allows me to fold to a raise.

    I would eliminate some of the sets as they were to raise flop. Only two pair in the flop is 75s and T9s on the turn. I would include a few more weak flushes here

    7h6h, 8h6h, QhJh, Jh8h

    Given the fact you said Lj has been limp calling quite a bit may include some hands like Kh8h as well.

    As played I think your cbet is way too small. Would consider a check raise or a cbet of about $25.

    Yes, I think sets are raising flop. I also think Tx, 7x, and 5x are calling flop cbet (I do not have many 5x or 7x combos are in his PF range), but I don't think they are calling on the turn. Tx might call the turn bet if it's part of a draw like AhTx, KhTx, QhTx, or JhTx.

    Cbet larger because hand is vulnerable and board is dynamic? How is the smaller turn bet? I felt like I could already be behind to the made flush, and non-nut flushes might raise the turn. So smaller bet allows me to get away from the hand with minimal investment.

    Wouldn't checking allow you to get away with minimum investment as well?
