      i think i got the most value from weaker hands. Is it right? Cuz AK would have betted himself, i think, and any worse hands would just called. or should i have betted all streets?

      I dunno if it is good thinking, but I would've c/c on the flop. It's very unlikely that he holds an Ace there so he is folding almost everything else. By checking flop you make your hand look like 99-QQ and you might get two bets from him. If you know he's able to float you on an A-high board in a 3bet pot then I like your line.

      I´d bet turn 10$ and shove river
      if he calls flop, then he has very likely Ax and I think he´d call you down
      And players usually are not betting turn himself on the turn hands that has showdown value
      I think betting flop is likely better than c/c or c/r, since you should start building pot on the flop to get most value for worse hands. Also players usually are not bet themself on Ax boards
