      i think checking the turn is my best option.

      On the river? I think calling is ok. He can be floating at least all Ax hands?

      Hey AchillesBG,

      Preflop open is fine.

      Cbet flop is decent, you have an open ender and can fold out PP's, A-high etc.

      I agree that checking turn is best, you can't fold out better any more, you hand is strong enough to try and get to showdown.

      River is a little awkward, not really sure what you beat. Presumably he doesn't play a PP this way, yet he can have AJ,AQ,AK,KT,KQ etc. I don't see what pure floats he has that can bluff river. Even Ace-high he might check down. I'd probs fold river. Call is not terrible given the odds you get + the action, but I think most of his range has you beat.
