      I think overall it's ok. If he didn't cbet flop taking a stab on turn looks good and you may even have the best hand if he has AK or lower pp. You could b/f river, because if he didn't cbet flop I doubt he has Jx or Qx, but I don't see real worse hands he may call here, so checking seems fine.

      I don't think I'm taking stabs here. He could bluff bet AK or semibluff some lower PPs and I'd rather just call them. TT doesn't play well against a standard opponents 3bet range and I'd play it mostly for set value.

      I like your bet on the turn. It's very likely he has AK once he checks back the flop and he's most certainly calling your bet. Also, Ak has decent equity against us and we must protect.

      On the river, I might actually go for another value bet. I'd make it really small. Someting like 10c, just to get another crying call from AK. People hate folding AK =)

      He could also have Jx in his range, the way he played it post flop, BUT there aren't many Jx that are 3betting pre, so I'm not worried about that.

      That said, I'd still fold to a raise on the river, because once he calls turn, he has sd value and it wouldn't make sense to turn it into a bluff on the river.
