      It smells like a monster(many mediocre players play in a similar way their big hands).
      I'd just call it down here - not many worse hands would call us anyway if we shove.

      Don´t really see a lot of value shoviong here.
      Villain often has here Ax or boat- doubt he would lead river with Tx or some other one pair hand.
      I´d call.

      Is turn check behind possible here? I only see him calling 1 street when ace comes if he has weak made hand since he thinks you can 2nd barrel this, but he won't call any river card(except ace maybe) with worse hands.

      So he sometimes calls turn with weaker hand, sometimes folds it, and of course calls with stronger. So if we want value of our ace, can't we check behind and bet river so he calls super often or tries to bluff himself?

      Since flop is dry and ace is bad card for him, then check is fine to call river bet or bet river, but since I double barrel here always with air then I don´t see any reason to check back with ace.
