      Hey,

      After he opens UTG and doesn't cbet that flop he often has a midpair, overs or A high. It's unusual for him to not cbet there but the point is that when the ace comes and you lead you just make him fold too much. If he has Ax he is betting it and if he doesn't he will represent it. You just make him fold air and call Ax that bets anyway so leading there is not the best EV play imo. As played, you can get some value from a few weaker suited aces in his UTG range while also being confident he doesn't have a hand like AT, TT, JJ making the top of his range only strong enough to call but also the middle of his range too weak to vbet against a check from you.

      It's pretty good idea! It's scary card for me so he can bluff me as well so x/c T seems like a nice idea but what about River still x/c and let him bet w/ bluffs / aces again? Btw he has AJ

      River would still be a check/call often depending on sizing. He vbets Ax sometimes, he bluffs others but not very often ofc. Just in case you are a bit results oriented here, think about it: if you check/call you put in the same amount anyway vs his specific hand, the only 'mistake' is the turn lead given how your ranges look. Otheriwse, these 2 hands play the same all the time while keeping in mind that on a blank you get the money and he only wins when he hits J. :)
