      I think you can consider just CB on the flop for value against his overcards, or checking and then betting the turn (as a delayed CB) or calling his donk, and then checking to see the river if you dont hit, or betting yourself for value when you hit.

      You are not always bluffing when betting with A high since he calls wide you can be getting value from his overcards.
