      What do you think he calls on the river worse than bottom 2?

      You basically need him to call a hand such as JJ, QQ, KK, Axs.

      I believe you have the best hand here a very significant part of the time but your hand becomes not much different than AK against his calling range, relative to the board. If you think he always gets it all in with sets earlier then betting should be fine. If you can also run into a set then it's very ugly. Being deep might mean he doesn't get it in with sets so I'd be concerned about value betting. This is just from sort of a range breakdown point of view.

      In practice, your image counts a lot here. I would bet this almost always against almost any regular because they hand read and they don't like giving me credit. They put me on the 2 busted draws, they think I don't bet a lone Ace so they call their JJ or whataver. If you are perceived as a non-bluffer and people give you credit I would lean towards checking back here.
