      Hi,

      Checking back flop is fine. It depends if you think you get middle pairs and gutshots to float you but in general I prefer checking back middle pair with no kicker.

      It can be OK to call turn and fold river. You look unlikely to have Ax so his value range can contain all Ax and better. My usual plan is to check back some hands like A2-A6 on the flop, maybe even a bit stronger and call twice, while Kx would mostly call once.

      I am also checking back all A2-A9 versus aggro opponent. I dont expect him to bet turn and check river, thats why I called. So if I assume that, it is either fold turn or call down?

      If you assume he always double barrels you have to think of what range he does it with. If he barrels like 75% against a missed cbet it's likely a call. If he checks more often vs a missed cbet or doesn't barrel all his hands you might want to just fold turn but also consider cbetting. You don't get value per say but you might have higher EV becuase of your equity vs his flop range and vs calling range.
