      44-JJ , AQ . I like your play but on the river you should check because he bets flop , call 3 bet on turn on dry board , he had to have somthing.

      You try to bluff on the turn and that was good but on river just check back.

      If you want to raise, raise on the flop when the pot is still small and opponent looks weak.

      Failed cheap bluff = small mistake, failed expensive bluff = big mistake. It's okay to commit small mistakes but not big ones.

      since it is very hard to call him down with A high I think I´d prefer just raising flop to 2.7$ and if get called then give up the hand
      This way you force out his air and he can also take b/f line with his weaker overpairs
      As played: I wouldn´t bet river since I think once he calls turn he would also call river
