      I float on the flop because I think he'll slow down with every non pocket hand that doesn't improve. When he snap checks to me, I think he's giving up, but he called pretty quickly, so I thought he wasn't folding the river either, I was pretty surprised with what he showed up

      I would just fold preflop, I think his range is just way too strong for you to call profitably with ATo. A typical MP opening range would be something like AJ+/KQ/22+ and maybe some suited stuff. ATo plays very poorly vs such a strong range.

      Because the PF call is not good, the F call is also suboptimal. If villain was opening really wide, then I could find more arguments for
      1) Calling and showing down the hand - best when ranges are really wide
      2) Calling and bluffing on a later street like you did here - better when ranges are not that tight but not that loose
