      I guess you are beaten here, Check/Fold river is the best idea.

      Don't see much point in a check raise when you are the pfa, just put in a standard c-bet your c-betting this flop with air should do it with your made hand also.

      If you want to mix it up i read today from a very good coach at another site to use check call flop donk turn for a variety of reasons. With the c/r line you are playing a bloated pot with a medium strength hand oop. I also check/fold river. If he's a regular i can never see him value betting worse and he wouldn't have got to the river with a bluff.

      No way to not cbet flop, there's flushdraw out there and you get value from lower aces. c/r is - i think - particularly stupid because you only get called by better hands.
      If you bet turn for value you also have to bet river for value. Concerning you, the K is a blank.
      I'd already give it up on turn tho, b/c after c/r call on flop, you're beat most of times when even the flushdraw completes.

      bet/bet/bet is standard line to take there and I can´t see why you should go c/r on the flop and c/f on the river.
