      I felt sure he was going to make a c bet with hands that missed and that by betting it myself he would not put any chips in

      I think I would've rather played c/c all streets since he's likely to cbet here with every hand he 3bet you with, but he most likely won't call your raise without an A or set of Aces here. So I think playing c/c maximizes value against other hands without an Ace. And yeah as you said it yourself, if you donkbet it here he's quite likely to fold if he doesn't have an Ace, or perhaps he will think you on a bluff, but I don't think you can count on that here.

      I like c/c: with AK, he'll never fold, with AQ,JJ+KK we don't want to scare him off
