      Opp is a solid LAG 20/16. I bet on the turn because I think he's pretty weak and since my line on the turn screams draw I decided to bluff the river, since the flush draw completed. Now maybe the ace wasn't really the best card since he can be overplaying AA,AK here but every other club should be just perfect spot for a bluff.

      Fold preflop :P .

      Flop and turn I play the same.

      On the river it's close, you can definitely try to get him off Jx, QQ, KK. I probably also try it, we can rep some hands and he never has Ax unless it's AJ or AA.
      So he has to fold a lot of hands.

      I don´t really like betting river, since Ax is not that lard part of your range and I think he would often c/c there, although he might also fold
      Depends a lot of player, but LAG usually isn´t folding :)
      But if you bet then I think 15$ has the same effect than 19$, so you can bluff river cheaper
