      Hey Adsefghijk,

      Preflop as a bluff is good.

      Well played on flop, checking is superior to betting unless you knew villain would float wide.

      On the turn, seeing as you have hearts locked up, going for another check hoping to induce a bluff is a legitimate option. Your range looks very weak when you check twice, which is great when you hold an Ace.

      Betting is ok, but villain usually doesn't have all that much. The most he can have is something like QK that hits on the turn, but more often a hand like TT that you won't extract 2 streets of value from anyway.

      River value bet is fine, but you can't bet any larger. A smaller bet might be good even.

      Villain's AF is only 1, though the sample size is unk. When he doesn't cbet flop he never has a thing, perhaps a draw, so I'd definitely be inclined to lead turn and river after his c-back.

      But don't like the idea of ch/r, he is passive and never bets IP with worse.
