      Bet flop. Vs a checkraise you have an easy fold, if he check/calls you can still decide whether to bet the turn for value&free showdown or if you want to check back.
      By checking back the flop you have no idea where you're at and still lose a bet vs Ax (I suppose you're not just giving up and folding to any bet).

      As played call turn should be standard.

      As played on the river I think you should make it smaller, even as small as $0.4 or $0.5.
      After all you're trying to get some random hand to call, hoping for a split.

      Hello kenthmp,

      I actually like the Check behind for this reason that it's a 3bet pot and we don't get anyways much value from him if he has some smaller PPs. While we still could get value on later streets, maybe even 2 streets of value. And also I don't really expect them to bet anyways that often when they don't have the ace there, rather play it passively, so we shouldn't be worried much about the hand. Just curious what did he have then? :)

      Best regards.
