      I think, that JJ is strong enough to 3-bet for value against unknown. Plenty worse calls, also I`m OOP and initiative is nice.

      I don`t like to c-bet here, most of his range are Ax hands, and pocketpairs would check back anyway.

      When the A pairs, my plan is to check it down. I think, I have to call, after I shoved weakness on the flop&turn. He could be be betting worse here.

      Villain probably would never bet worse again, so plan is to c/f.

      Flop: Checking flop is reasonable vs a bad/mediocre player. They will often misplay their hand vs your flop check by either bluffing too much or paying you off too light later on.

      Turn: This is a good card for us. He rarely has QQ/KK here, the Ace reduces the likelihood of us having one ourselves, and it brings a 2nd flush draw to the board. I would bet 1.30 here and decide on the river. Maybe we can bet again on a blank river for thin value.
