      I think Villain's stats tell the story... :)
      I'm very much ahead of his range on every street, but he doesnt like to call down with air, and he's aggressive, so I've decided to bluffcatch.
      River is close, but I think against him I can still call. What could he valuebet here? PPs, 5x, A4, 64. On the other hand his range contains ~70% of all combos, and I've shown weakness all the way postflop.
      What do you think?

      I think your play is fine. I would likely bet myself both flop and turn to not give him free cards and then check river unimproved, although c/c down to see showdown seems also fine to me.

      Most of the times if I 3-bet pf AK I would c-bet, since his range are so wide that I should show profit even if I c-bet 100%. c/c him down would often turn your hand into bluff catcher and lets him valuebet correctly against you range.

      best regards,
