      only by betting the flop , if you think he has nothing or he bluffs alot check flop and than call turn (if pot size if lower you can raise) and raise river all in or bet 3/4 if he checks

      Agreed. And I don't think you should bet the flop, it's just too likely that villain will just put you on Ax and get away from whatever he has. It's not like people at nl5 will expect you to c-bet the flop enough to warrant you being worried about balance in that spot. It's usually much better to act like you don't have the A either and play it from there.

      On the river I'd bet closer to $4, villain pot donked the turn. If he was bluffing he's not calling anything, if he wasn't bluffing he had a hand worse trying to protect on the turn, so he can easily put you on some kind of whiffed redraw and talk himself into calling $4 just as easily as $3 with his AQ or something.


      Hope it helps.
