      Depends on what level villain is on.

      If he's just blindly aggressive or good enough to understand that your range here will be hard pressed to stand 3 barrels, then by all means check/call all the way.

      If he's thinking enough to understand that you always have something when you don't c-bet that flop but doesn't have it in him to try and take you off it he might just check it back, in which case c-betting just like when you have air and checking the turn to him to let him bet his floats might be better.

      I'd say at nl50 most people won't fire 3 barrels into you without the goods so if he bets the river strong again you're likely toast with that line, even tho it's hard for him to have a big ace with which to fire a third time given the preflop action.

      Hope it helps.
