      With this stats, i put the vilain on this range:

      77-22, ATs-A9s, K9s+, QTs+, JTs, AJo-ATo, KTo+, QJo

      Preflop, raise is ok

      On flop, check/call is i think best move here, cause you want to induce bluff and board is not very draw heavy. You have 77% to be ahead.

      On turn, you have a flush draw, you have 82% to be ahead, but it's probably that he beats you with KQ, 44. With his 18% wTS, you should take care, and do check/call or bet/call. Your hand is too weak for check/raising i think. Don't put your whole stack on this hand.

      Just check/call the turn without history, a tag will expect your range to be stronger than TPGK when you raise there so you'll just isolate yourself against better hands in the process. For all you know he could have AK with the As leaving you all-in with 3 outs.

      On the river you likely have to call again and puke if he has the last A with a better kicker. Bet between 1/2 and 2/3 pot if he checks to you, he can put you on busted stuff and c/c there.

      Hope it helps.
