      I bet for protection + value, does check on turn make sense?

      No, as played shoving on the turn is better, whatever worse hands he called with on the flop he's not gonna fold for a half pot turn shove, but he might check behind with them. If you don't feel good shoving that turn then maybe consider not check/raising the flop for value with TPTK against that tightish guy.

      I probably would just check/call him down since i don't expect him to 3bet preflop with much that we beat on that board really. AK/QQ+ has us either splitting or dead, and AQ/TT-JJ won't put more money in after the c-bet ever. So unless that guy has abnormal 3bet% for his 12/10 stats, i wouldn't c/r TPTK "for value" there without history.

      Hope it helps.

      Anther thing to mention - calling his 3bet with AK , OOP with 100BB effective stacks is bad. either 4bet or dump it.
      You only hit your TP 1 out of 3 times so:

      -when you miss, most of the times you gonna have to c/f that flop against this guy.

      -when you hit he isn't going to pay you more then one cbet with QQ (when a K or and A hit the board) or with KK (when and Ace hit the board)
