      Hi,

      either villain isn't that good, or he had air like you, too.
      A good villain would surely barrel turn and river even without an ace.
      So I'd just contibet, the hand becomes way more easier to play.
      On turn you are able to barrel a lot of cards if you'd get called, or you check behind and barrel river if he checks again.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      +1.

      Cbet this flop, it's perfect for cbet as if he doesn't have an A he is very often folding also other hands have only gutshots to improve and he is very likely to fold JQ,KQ,KJ which sure you are ahead of but still got few outs.I don't see the purpose in calling the turn when you acted like giving up the hand on the flop because he is very likely to bet the river again and you got 4 outs to make a strong hand and other 6 outs can be reverse ones.

      I also like c-bet on the flop
      I think you might be easily ahead on the river, but once he checks I think he is also a lot of times c/f so I think river bluff is fine
