      He seems to be fish. Is it ok to bet turn? It is more unlikely that he has Tx, he could have Kx, but also gutshot, fd.
      Is river check call ok? I would fold to his 1/2 bet size pot, because it looks more like Kx, but when he bets big on river especially with paired T, it looks more like busted fd.

      This is really fancy. Just check/fold the Flop immediately. He is tight preflop, and I think he has so many hands which connect really well with this Flop. Even if he calls the Flop with AJ/AQ, you are not getting to the showdown.

      Here you made a really spewy play and got lucky, but I think you are just dominated by his range of KX and TX and QJ that you are not beating enough busted draws to justify continuing on the Turn or River.
