      I figured villain would have bet JT on the turn. He called my 3 bet so the only hands i think he could have are 55-99. He doesn't bet so i figure he doesn't have a pocket pair. I bet the river small because i thought more times than not he was on a draw, a ten maybe. Is the river bet ok?

      I would switch to c/f mode most likely. If he has any pp that could he possibly have in 3bet pot, he will call the river imho as like he called the flop. I don't see point of betting river as you have showdown value and I can't usually see hands he could lay down that are better than AK. If he has like 22/33 like ever he may fold them, but I doubt he would call flop with them instead of playing just for set value. In some cases he may have 99/TT, but I doubt again it's worth trying to shake them off.

      I'd cbet .75 on the flop and prolly just switch to c/f mode.

      he may fold indeed river 22,33. but he should call all the better hands, maybe players are scared and doesn´t want to take their one pair hands to showdown, so you may even have higher fold equity.
      Your AK high is sometimes good against AQ/AJ, so I don´t mind river bet, since you´re likely not going to c/c river yourself
