      I would like to ask how to play this hand right.

      I got lost on turn. If I check - show there's no ace in my hand, I won't know if he could bluff me with pocket or only v-bets with AT+. If I bet, I turn my hand into bluff, since worse won't call anymore.

      What should be done here? Thank you

      Hey JohnDoe,

      On the turn it's best to check back turn and re-evaluate river. As you said, if you bet there you turn your hand into a bluff, but your hand is way too strong to do so.

      Villain looks rather decent and if he doesn't have Ax or Jx then A on the turn will be a scare card for him as well and I wouldn't expect him to bluff the river unless you have any additional info on the metagame between you two.

      Best regards,
