      I don't think you should play it differently, maybe bet slightly more on the turn for value against OESDs/FDs/GSs. Against tight/more aggressive players you might consider barreling the river again to possibly fold out better Kx hands since they don't have busted draws / Jx that often as they'll often raise the flop with those and fold the turn with weakish draws/gutshots, tho since you bet so small on the turn they might not have folded those. As it is I think betting again would just be spewy against this guy you're better off check/calling.

      If he really did show you AA it's obvious he's not very good at valuebetting his strong hands, which means he's only capable of valuebetting trips+ if even that, which should make you even more suspicious if he happens to bet the river when draws missed and you check to him because his ratio of valuebets/bluffbets is likely quite small if he's capable of bluffing.

      Hope it helps.

      Yes he really did show me aces at the end of this hand. Sure players at 1 cent 2 cents are not very good at many things. I was just frustrated on that day because I ran into many good hands over and over.
