I don`t have reads on the Villain

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

So std open with PPs from CO, and got called by BB. After he leads the flop I was thinking of re-raising but then I thought of just calling this flop a left his bluff range in game.
The turn card does not change the board texture and he makes pot size bet again. I call and the river is a face card which is potentially bad card for me, but I end up calling the river bet also.

Should I`ve re-raise the turn? And should I`ve fold OTR when he bets. I don`t think they would 3-barrel bluff a lot.

I'd raise flop. The problem with taking a passive line against an unknown with such a vulnerable hand is that you have no idea what turn/river cards are good or bad for you. Any overcard could be bad, any diamond could be bad, you don't know. I don't mind folding out some of his bluffs because I also expect to get called by worse e.g. flush draws, straight draws, 7x.

The other problem with calling is that it's very difficult to range villain when he pots it. I suppose your turn call is fine but I'd fold the river. The villain is unknown and like you say, very few villains at these stakes pull off three-barrel bluffs or would play this way with 7x.
