      He made some weird plays at the start of the session, but tightened up after some time. Did I overplay my hand here?

      I'd consider checking behind turn because there are very few worse hands that call you again. So you can see a free river for your FD and you keep the pot small against better aces.

      EDIT: I just realised the impossibility of checking behind on the Turn :D

      with nut flushdraw and top pair your play is fine there
      He can raise there with worse hands and most of the hands you have enough equity to get all-in

      The thing about this guy is the AF, which is miserly. I don't think he minraises a worse hand on the turn.

      As played I either shove or fold, but I kind of like checking the turn, as Dandy suggests, giving you the odds to call his small turn value bet, which he is sure to make with a better hand.

      As played, I think it is -ev against his probable holding.
