      Flop: I think it's fine to stab here, you could also check this back and try to SD Ace high but I think betting is probably better if you expect villain to be check/folding a ton.

      Turn: Very easy bet now. Just bet here and shove all rivers. How often will villain have TT-AA? I don't think he has those very often. More likely, he's on something like AT/KT/99 and if we want to be bluffing here a lot we should also be value betting thinly. And I actually don't think this value bet is thin, in fact I think there are a ton of worse hands which can pay us off.
