      Hope for a bluff or split on river since there is a lot of dead money? I dont think he bluffs here ever, because he hits here at least something.

      Flop: In general when ranges are wide I would often opt to showdown and bluff catch with AK/AJ/AQ high. This board isn't too great though. I don't mind betting here but on low paired flops the EV of checking is much greater.

      Turn: I don't like the bet here unless you are going to bluff a ton of blank rivers. He has so many pair+draw on the Turn which are never folding to a single bet. You need to fire many rivers to push him off stuff like T9/J9.

      River: This is a pokerstove spot. Compare your pot odds vs pot equity. It helps that you have Ad here, less likely he has a backdoor FD. Include KJ (nut straight) and some combos of flushes, and a lot of JX hands. You're getting 22% pot odds I think, but you are only calling for half the pot. I think it's close though. Maybe he bluffs occasionally but I doubt he is bluffing >5% òf the time.
