      On the one hand, check-call flop followed by check-raise turn is basically the most strength betraying line ever taken by anyone ever (and is rarely done as a bluff because you need strong nerves to offer a free card). Every time i face this line i know i'm up against a strong hand. I don't think i've ever seen it done with lower than two pair in my limited experience.

      On the other hand, you do have aces and the board is horribly dry against a normal opponent's range (i guess except for the sets). Maybe he has an overpair and thinks he's betting for value. I'd probably take a line similar to yours and then berate myself when he shows the nuts.

      I'd play it the same way but I wouldn't be sad about it.

      While it is a bit unusual for people who just call on the flop with an overpair to actually raise that dry turn with those, you will still see people do it. So with so much money in the pot already giving us great odds to call it off, the possibility of villain having a worse overpair than us, and our gutshot that might save us sometimes against trips or something, I just don't think there is any way around that.

      Hope it helps.
