Hero wins 43.7 BB

Not sure if calling the c/r on a flop this connected is a good idea, as there are a lot of scare cards that can come, but also seems like something we shouldn't be too scared of as they're unlikely to hit. And we could also improve to a boat or better, even if a flush or straight card comes on the turn.
I bet because i figured Villian caught a piece (he did check-raise), and was expecting him to call. Curious if calling this for more streets of value is the better play.

Second hand...

Flop: (5.5 BB, 2 players) 3:heart: 6:heart: J:club:

River: (15.9 BB, 2 players) T:spade:
BB bets 10.1 BB, Hero....

Here i checked back the flop, as there were less scare turn cards coming. Of course one comes on the turn, villain bets, i just call. Looking back maybe raising that turn is the right line? River cards can be terrible and I have a heart blocker, should make them pay for it. River is also not great for me, i'm never folding to a bet this small, but do i have enough value to raise? BB was playing pretty wide, but im not sure how many worse hands call a raise.
