      I thought turn bet would scare him and only called by exact flash.

      and on river, marginal hand won't do so but Is there bluff hand?

      I think your ace is too weak to call here... He will do this with a flush and Ax quite often imo... it's just over a potsize bet, not such a big deal with regards to sizing so I would opt to fold. I think betting the turn for value is the better play, and it remains a bet/fold. With AK you can probably bet/call given extra outs and being ahead of all other Ax.
