      if I bet on the turn,he will think I have an ace,I wanted pocket pairs to come with me ,so I planned to check raise.
      on the river , unless he has A3,33( not good call against UTG range) ,there are a ton of weak aces,so I bet call.
      should I have bet to protect on the turn rather than induce?

      Hello,

      This is a relatively easy hand to play because we just have to bet. The logical thinking that you want PPs to come along is a bit flawed because I think with 2 Aces on the Flop, it is less likely you can have an Ace.

      In any case you have a $35 stack with a $20 on the Turn so if you check & he has an Ace but still checks back, you lose a lot of value! Ofcourse you can overbetshove the River but most of the time we bet $15 missing $20 of value

      I would just bet again on the Turn, maximizing my value & being consistent if I want to bluff him as I will be betting the Turn as well
