      I assume your plan was to check raise the flop. If he has a low c-bet %, leading flop big is a better option.

      Turn is very player dependent. If he's the kind of player that stabs that turn to represent it, a check raise is definitely the best option to get value from his stabs with air as well as max value from any jacks in his range. If not, leading turn is fine, but make your sizing bigger, somewhere in the neighborhood of 3/4 pot.

      On the river, you're really only betting the river to get value out of a jack since there really aren't many hands at all in his range that beat you. He's betting the river 100% of the time with a jack (at least most people are) so I prefer a check/raise here to get max value out of that jack as well as maybe inducing stabs with missed draws.

      Running into A3 is pretty unlucky, him not raising river is pretty atrocious so congrats on somehow losing the minimum I guess? lol
