      I'd check the turn and value-bet ~$15 on the river.

      Reason being is that I'm slightly worried of villain slow-playing the Ace, but also of scaring them out of the pot. IMO, a turn bet opens up the risk of either being check/raised or losing value.

      To me, a value bet on the river maximises both safety and value.

      3-way i check behind on both streets. WP.

      only value we get is from the rivered J, and even then, those hands that call the flop and river a J will have made 2 pair.

      Bet at least 6$ on the flop.
      Both turn and river are fine.
      Although I believe that you´re ahead here, can´t imagine what worse hands would call your valuebet on the river.

      And you should reload pf.
