      Assuming this guy is kind of fishy, you can consider checking Flop since few worse hands call (at most AJ and AQ) and better hands are not folding (pocket pairs). Usually he will only stab one or two streets and you can bluff catch profitably.

      If you want to bet the Flop, you should consider 2 and 3 barreling. Look at the WTSD and fold to F/T/R cbet to construct a barreling strategy to fold out his weak pocket pairs.
