      i would protect my hand on the turn, as i would think i am ahead (most likely)... if he had trips villain did nothing to protect the hand against draws and disguised the hand pretty well... but i don't see any hand that doesn't raise there as trips^^

      if my bet on the turn gets called and he checks to me on the river i could think of checking behind, but i would then be pretty convinced that my hand is good and go for a value bet against any jack and smaller aces

      Villain (tiny small sample, risky to use) looks limpy-weaktight. The sort of person who will call along with any made hand to showdown, never bluffs, and folds if they miss.

      So cbet flop, check behind turn, call river is fine here for me. Id prefer to value-street when we have TPTK and there isnt an obvious monster on the board for the villain to hold. Less variance that way.

      If the sample was larger and the villain's AF a little lower, you would even fold to a reasonable river bet there....

      Seems easy valuebet on the turn
      I think he´d c/r flop with trips
      I´d also raise river 4$ for value
