      I like pre and flop. Preflop you can sometimes consider flatting but 3betting will be close in EV imo, just depends on other factors like blinds and your plan vs CO in general.

      I like the flop check since you rarely, if ever get value plus if you 3bet wide pre you cannot cbet there 100% of your range like you are sometimes told to do.

      I think you should bet the turn for value though. Ax and better leads the turn often and you don't represent an ace in your opponent's eye. His range is midpairs KQ, KJ, QJ JTs type stuff so that card improves his range reasonably well to a second best hand which pays you off on the turn. The secondary benefit is that you also get a free showdown if you choose it. After check on turn, river is ofc snap call.
