      We should plan our hand preflop although with premium hands like these it shouldn't take too long ;)

      Preflop: Why not 3-bet larger for value? We can do at least 4x here.

      Flop: He does seem aggro over the small sample that he has played so far. If we've seen anything from him we can easily check to let him bet (and call).

      If we cbet we could still get called by worse but turn and river would become more difficult to play.

      As played I am really surprised by your passive line. He checks the flop behind which tells us that at least part of his value range is missing.

      And then we check again and he bets. Since we checked twice this is very likely a bluff and at this point I wouldn't fold turn and most likely river.

      Alternatively we can bet the turn. Ck/folding seems very weak as we have the best hand here way too often.
