      Flop: I think the Flop and Turn bets seem fine vs a fish.

      River: Your options here are to bet small and fold or check/fold. I don't think you are significantly ahead of villain's range which is why you probably only have these 2 options, and c/c seems like a bad idea when there are no busted draws and 5X already has trips on the Turn.

      The looser/more passive he is, the better your block bet is. Without reads I think you can just check/fold here unless he makes some goofy 1/3 pot bet like you did, which could easily be made with weaker hands like JT/J9 so you could c/c. But I think c/f is probably the best option vs a 50% pot bet or more vs most.

      AJ is more of a bet though and I would bet 15bb here.
