Did I Miss Opportunity At River Bet?

I am in the cutoff, Villian is sitting directly to the right of me. I have 6600 in chips, he has 10,800. Blinds are 120-240 (it's a turbo tournament, 12 minute blind levels). Villian opens the pot with a limp, I put in a raise before the flop to 560. Button folds. Small and Big Blind folds and the Villian just smooth calls. Now up to this point he had been playing INCREDIBLY tight. ABC poker, hasn't stepped out of line, and I hadn't see him play anything but premium hands. No C-betting, no aggression unless he has a premium hand so I have him on a pretty small range of good starting hands, especially with the limp to open the pot.
Flop comes out 6c-As-4s. Villian checks the flop, I bet 900 into a pot of 1480. He snap calls without any hesitation. At this point I really put him on a premium A, potentially a flush draw.
The turn peals off the 7d. Villian checks the turn. I bet 2200 into a pot with 3280 into it now. He smooth calls again. At this point, when he calls I am definitely thinking I am beat. I know that this is very hard to think considering I'm being a set of 4's, 6's, 7's, AQ, or AK with the range of hands I am putting him on pre-flop because of how tight he has played thus far, so I think I am in trouble.
The river comes the Kh. He checks again. I just was not really sure what I should do at this point in the hand and with 7680 already in the pot, I feel like if I shoved here I was only going to get called by hands that had me in trouble. I decided to check the river.
Is there any value in betting here on the river? Is there really anything I could have done differently in this pot? Or is 7680 on this hand a pretty good pickup at this point in the tournament?

I agree with your take aka, betting the river really wouldn't get me anything other than called by a worse hand in my opinion. Just wanted to get what others thought on the hand.
