      i would have played the same way here. you have a hand with good showdown value. making these bets lets you know where you stand.

      Why check the flop ?
      The villain rarely has an ace, and even if he does, it is a weak one and he must be afraid of a better kicker since you raised preflop (hence the calldown).
      I would go for cbet/fold flop, c/f turn & river line here.
      Imo by checking you showed weakness and villain read that you dont have an A, but was still afraid of his weak kicker.
      Bad play by him, but imo worse play by you :-)

      i would bet/fold this flop . you take value from a 8 or worst pocket pair and you fold to an ace .
      their are some cards you dont want to see on the turn like j q k that will turn your hand into a bluff catcher ...
      if he calls flop i would probably check call turn and check fold any river

      I prob check/fold river here.

      His turn call could indicate he has a FD (completed on the river), an Ace or a higher PP (he isnt folding it on the river to a midpot-size bet I think).
