      Since you played your hand pretty much face up( ether its weak A or bluff,since flop is good to cbet) , I can see lot more missed draws( KQ,QJ,KJ), lower PP (JJ,QQ) and second pair (Tx) hands in hes range than A ces that beat you.
      I assume that AK is 3b pf, AT is raising flop or bet turn, AQ,AJ is betting turn for value, so basicly only Ax hand that beats you is A9.
      And again you played your hand pretty weakly by cbeting and shuting down, so he might take initiative with hands that are beaten by Ax hands,to win hand without SD, so I would deffo make a call here and if he plays AJ-AK like that make a note.

      Hello TheWinnerTakesItAll,

      You can't really Check/Fold the river whilst you played it this way, kinda turned hand into bluff-catcher. So have to call it down, though instead rather 2nd barrel it.

      Best Regards.
