      He like to raise cbet quite a bit it seems. When someone likes to play raise or fold against a cbet, betting for thin value doesn't work unless you think you can induce a raise from worse. In your case for example I think AJ is borderline but I usually opt for the more passive approach and check/call with a lot of my range here. He bets his thin value hands that could call anyway. Unless the board and our hand is good enough to cbet and call a raise, I don't think we should cbet.
