      Pre, Flop and Turn: pretty standard spot.
      Riv: we hit joker and I decided to bet very small. His check back on the turn shows that his range is something like 99-QQ so I want value from this hands. Probably w/ Ax villain would call bigger bet but because of the previous action on the turn I don't see many Ax types hands. Moreover this kind of small bet encourage villain to bluff and it happened, amazing good situation vill reraise us.
      What to do?
      I want to be sure that I get max value in this situtation...

      Flop: How is betting here standard? You are just isolating yourself vs AX hands. You are better off checking here.

      River: What hands are you targeting here? After he calls flop and checks turn, his most likely hand is AX.

      If we think he never folds top pair then our best bet here is to go for a 80-90% pot bet and hope he calls. If I were in villain's shoes with a hand like AT, I would definitely be calling here so you are just giving his weak AX hands a cheap showdown.

      I would much prefer check/raising to block betting, if that's what you are going for.
