      There are a few lines you can take here. You just need to realize that you can go for 2 streets of value only (which you pointed out here so that's great).

      1. Bet bet C/f - Good vs more straightforward opponents who don't raise light and won't turn stuff into bluffs

      2. Check/call with intention of c/c down on blank runouts while betting Turn or River if the earlier street is checked - Better vs aggro players who bluff raise a ton on the Flop. AA is a hand which doesn't really want to see a raise on the Flop most of the time

      3. Bet F c/c T - Another possible option but I prefer the first 2
