      fold 3bet 64%. raise flop 31%, call 21%.

      I check turn to balance my check fold, and also to get money from floaters. On river I would shove on blank to get called by overpairs, top pairs, etc, but the river is scare card for him, so I dont think that he would call with PP my shove. Also if he has FH here he calls it, but also he bets FH when I check. So I hoped that he puts me on JJ-KK, and turns his PP into bluff.

      Yet again I think you played well. The standard would be to bet/bet/shove but if you think he floats and bluffs quite often, you can definitely check turn here some of the time with AA. I don't think you should lead any river though, I think checking and hoping he continues to bluff is the way to go on any card.
