Have to say you probably made the max with the check on the river, Villain probably had 1 pair and with you showing strength the whole hand its not surprising he folded to a check raise.

2 things you could have done
1. Bet 1/2 pot instead of checked
2. Raised minimum on river

not sure either would get you paid more mind I think you played it well.

All depends on the villain you are playing, will they call a big bet or not. You need to keep your bets consistant, if you bet over pot every time you have a monster observant Villains will be able to pick up on it and lay down good hands they may have played with.

It's sometimes quite hard to win a monster pot with a boat, because it's hard for villain to have much, unless there are also flushes and straights possible. There are no flushes or straights possible on this super-dry board, so I'd be happy about getting 2 streets of value here, let alone three!
I really like your lead out on the flop. It would be kind of fancy to check-raise the turn, as villain isn't calling unless he has specifically KJ, so I like your pot-sized bet there. If villain is quite weak (just a jack or king) he's probably calling on the turn.
Checking the river can induce a bet from villain, but often he'll check behind with Jx, so you don't get value. So I'd just keep on betting. Check-raising the river is too fancy and often loses value. I'd fire the third barrel for about 3/4 pot and hope to get called by Jx/Kx.

The strategy for beating 2NL is pretty straightforward. When you have a big hand, just bet for value. The biggest mistakes villains make at this level are calling too much with weak hands, and not betting/raising enough with strong ones. So if villain is calling down, keep betting and let him make his favourite mistake.

Cheers,
Arty
