Checking the nuts oop turn & river

BTN: 190 BB
Hero (SB): 328 BB
BB: 79.5 BB
UTG: 100 BB
MP: 137.5 BB
CO: 108.5 BB

Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Jh Ah
fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 2 BB, Hero raises to 10 BB, fold, BTN calls 8 BB

Flop : (21 BB, 2 players) 9h Qh 8c
Hero bets 7 BB, BTN calls 7 BB

Turn : (35 BB, 2 players) 6h
Hero checks, BTN bets 15 BB, Hero calls 15 BB

River : (65 BB, 2 players) Kc
Hero checks, BTN bets 158 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 158 BB

I have a question....Should I be worried about balancing at micro stakes? I ask because if I had AhJc, I would barrel turn most of the time but like to check sometimes as played above.

Same goes when I flop a set on dry board as PFR OOP. I will cbet flop but check dry turns. Would you always barrel at micros or would it be villain dependant? Getting stuck in between trying to be somewhat balanced for when (if) I move up stakes whilst also trying to exploit as much as possible.

Also with regards to the hand above, I wouldnt normall cbet this flop 100% but as we are deeper and having a blocker to the nuts, I figured I could bet/call flop......logical or not?
