      I have given up on cbetting Axx boards OOP vs unknowns in 3bet pots @ NL10 rush cause they always flat their crappy ace rags.

      I guess I should've c/c the T as they would be checking back the weak Ax on the flop in a 3bet pot.

      And then c/c or c/f river?

      Hard to say, I rather like you betting the turn, check/calling won't save you from giving money to Ax, if anything you might even get away with it cheaper, while getting some value from potential worse hands.

      I usually check the river tho, it's harder for non Ax hands to call and like you said he has a bunch of those himself. We like to think we can check/call bluff-catch the river and sometimes we can, be you'll see that the majority of the time when people do bet they just have Ax.

      Hope it helps.
