      Flop: I could bet or check. Checking to give up could be good, especially if villain is tight. A tight range would contain many QX or mid pocketpair hands.

      On the other hand if his range isn't too tight, we can expect to see some AJ KJs KTs ATs 89s T9s JTs type of hands, and those would fold to a half pot cbet. With backdoor draws I think I would prefer cbetting vs this guy. His stats indicate that he's loose so you can get him to fold quite a few hands on the Flop.

      On the Turn I think delay cbet could be fine if you think his range is still very wide here. If he's passive and did not take a stab with hands like JTs KTs he would fold these hands now. But how often does he have these hands? Your bet size basically forces Ace high to call the Turn and that doesn't make sense. If we want to bluff him here we should just bet larger.

      On the River i agree with your bet sizing to get a light call from Ace high.
