      On river not sure. He can have AQ some of the time, and others should be made hands or hands which I beat anyway. Like Tx which is not foling on river, AK if it decided to go for bluffcatch.

      5x 2x I think does not go as bluffcatch very often - they would cbet. 8x also.

      So I think maybe better is to check and give up or c/c to catch busted draws. Not sure if there would be enough of those busted draws

      Hi

      I would just continue checking Ace Jack high here. I think you have enough showdown value to play it passively.

      Thanks.

      then what if he bets turn and river? On turn I assume its an easy call, but on river might be that after 2nd bet my A high is not that good.

      Or another case - he checks turn and bets river. If he wants to bluff, he is likely to bluff flop or turn and then when he bets river, it might be for thin value.

      So in those above cases most often its a fold?

      Yeah I'm probably calling one more bet, assuming that the board runout is blank.

      It's pretty hard to say whether to call or not. The card matters, and so does the size and timing. High cards get bluffed at more often, but high cards also connect with villain's range more often as well.

      It also depends on the nature of the player's style. Fishy players tend to delay their aggression until the river, when they realize that they no longer have any showdown value and will make some desperation bluff. Aggro players are likelier to bluff on an earlier street so that they can have the option of firing multiple barrels.
