      Hi,


      Both check/call flop check/raise turn and check/raise flop are fine lines to take. The first will allow villain to continue to bluff or valuebet worse on the turn, resulting in him being more committed to the pot, with the downsides that it actually looks stronger and microstakes villain don't valuebet/bluff the turn enough.

      When he checks behind the turn I would give him Ax most of the time and maybe 99-TT for the nittiest players, pretty much no chance we see JJ+ or another set at that point. So on the river I would actually check/raise that bet, it really looks like he binked the A and he really really wants you to call with 8x. So I'd make sure I make some raise whose size/timing/odds looks as appealing/full of shit as possible to AK hands and hope for the best, probably around $2.8. If we get jammed on we'll get a weird feeling obviously, but I think people check back the turn rarely enough with AA that we'd have to put him on overplayed AK hands and call it off.


      Hope it helps.
