      3/4 pot on the flop.

      On the turn I'd usually bet/fold it against such a player, he can still call with worse he doesn't have to have us beat at that point. If i'm worried he's the type to raise the turn with stuff like JT i might even decide to call it off.

      As played on that particular river you don't beat much of anything, everything that peeled the flop beats AA now, so I think it's a fold. If you wanna do anything differently, bet the turn.

      Hope it helps.
