Playing paired boards

BN: $50 (Hero)
SB: $25.25
BB: $24.35
UTG: $166.21
HJ: $79.82
CO: $34.58
HJ is a regular at PLO50zoom and also has some decent stats maybe around 24/17/6
Preflop ($0.75) (6 Players)
Hero was dealt T 6 Q J
UTG folds, HJ raises to $1.50, CO folds, Hero calls $1.50, SB folds, BB folds
Already pre I wasnt sure if flatting or 3betting would be better because it would be nice to play HU IP with this kind of hand but i feel like he will be pretty tight from HJ so flatting seemed like a better option.
Flop ($3.75) 7 7 6 (2 Players)
HJ bets $2.20, Hero raises to $5.50, HJ calls $3.30
Just before I started my session I watched Stefan Legat's PLO Zoom 200 video where he talks about attacking paired boards so I thought I can do the same! :-)

This is is one of the board were I would expect him to cbet quite often to just take down the pot. So with having a 6 and doubl BDFD in my hand i though this would be a nice spot to raise his cbet because I am expecting lots of folds from him. Even with an over pair it will be hard for him to continue imo. If i get called i can still turn some good equity. Is this though process correct?
Turn ($14.75) 5 (2 Players)
HJ checks, Hero bets $9.50, HJ calls $9.50
When he calls I was pretty sure that he had an overpair because most of his hands that include a 7 would be like 567x or 789x and I would expect him to either raise flop or bet turn with these hands. Turn card is a pretty good card for me because I thought that now with the straight being outthere he will definitely fold his overpair at this point. correct?
River ($33.75) 8 (2 Players)
HJ checks, Hero checks
Once he calls turn again I just decided to give up on the river because when he calls this turn as well i doubt he is folding his overpair OTR.
Final Pot
HJ has A Q K A HJ wins $32.23
Would like tho start a little discussion about paired board and when to raise cbet and even more importantly when we should continue bluffing turn and rivers!!!
