      aagainst a weaker player I would most likely bet bigger like 5bb and otherwise I would just give up if you don't blieve he will ever fold a draw or better hand. After the river a call is marginal with most of the time the 2nd best hand.

      I think pre flop its fine to just flat AJo vs an unknown and hope to play postflop IP, I also agree OTF you should bet bigger when checked to as you should have more combos of made flushs being the pre flop caller, once you get called i think the rest of the hand just plays as played and villain will almost never fold in this particular situation.

      I don't flat have AJo in my calling range CO vs MP, 3bet or fold.
      He is suposed to check that board a lot. Don't get to crazy about that.
      If you bet flop, you have to bet that turn when you hit your flush.
      That's why I check back here and bet turn if he checks again.
      As played, that river you are behind often (Q ou even the A), although I've seen agressive players betting OOP those rivers when you check those scare turns (I bet myself in this spots too, but usually a massive overbet).
