      On the flop I have 2 options: check/shove or bet/broke. Which one you prefer and why?
      On that board I will be giving up a lot, so I could better balance my check/folding range by check/raising
      If he checks back probably he doesn't have a pair and I guess could push him off AK.
      Bet/broke is like a standard line but I don't actually make a better hand to fold or worse hand to call.

      As played would you continue betting the turn? His range is something like overpairs and ace highs I guess so I think with most of his range he would bet the turn and if I bet he is folding A high. When he checks back turn I think his range is mostly A highs and because of that I shoved the river.
      Do you think my thought process was right to get most value?

      I think bet/bet/shove line would be the best or bet flop and c/rai turn to let him float flop and then shove turn with fold equity.

      Since you made your hand you should continue betting. Not sure if he would b/c turn worse hands than two pair, but he might easily call turn once more (and even call on blank river smt like 99)

      If you bet 14$ then you have easy river shove.

      I personally would not shove river, but valuebet 14$. He would very likely bet himselt his Ax hands and even if he ahs there smt like AJ, he would fold putting you on AK

      Best regards,
