      Preflop raise and flop contibet are fine.
      On turn, you hit your ace, but your kicker is not good enough. You should check/call.

      on river, it's a check call again, unless he checked behind on turn. Than you bet half of the pot for value.

      i think that if i check the turn he could have the flush draw and im not letting him to get a free card, and i have to get value from my top pair!

      you don't have a good enough hand to bet again turn : "you should make big pots with big hands, and small pots with small hands"

      c/c turn seems one option.
      I´d likely bet myself,s icne he´d likely call again all his draws and mayve Jx hands, but if he decides to raise then I`m folding
      c/c river is ok after you decided to b/c turn
