      You flip with worse aces. I would just check/call.

      I think b/f is fine on flop and turn. I would just c/c on river, as now you're chopping against Ax, flush missed and I doubt he's calling solid bet with pocket pair.

      B/b and then c/c river would be my line here. Your 2.8 bet is like a house-wins bet. You just generate rake from all other Ax hands against which you split and will almost surely call. The way it played out you might get called by KcXc but it's not worth that bet as you will not always extract value from that hand.

      Cheers.

      flop and turn are fine
      I think I also like c/c river more, since this would give him chance to bet out his missed draws and he is not folding Ax to your river bet
