      Hey Dzikson999,

      Flop check back is good here for pot-control.

      Turn call is good, villain can fire more than just Ax here. Flush-draws, lower PP's for protection, random bluffs like KQ or weak pairs like 45s.

      River is very close. I'd probably call because A obviously removes a bunch of Ax combos from his range. He can still easily have an Ax though. Also he can have pure-bluffs + busted-draws. You need to be good 33% of the time or so to call.

      Also because of your line there is still not only bluffing missed draws, but also a bunch of small-medium pockets. Call.
