      - raise/stack off on the flop, since you have A high and a lot of fold equity against made hands
      Also prefer raising turn and playing for stacks

      - well you have some showdown value, so you can check back, although betting river is reasonable, since Kx/AA would likely bet and you block QQ

      What did villain have?
      - maybe JJ, although he could also hold that spot T9s
