      Should I valuebet the river? I mean his hand smells awful lot like AK, but why would he check the river with that, since he should expect to get value from my AJ/AQ which I would otherwise check behind.

      At the same time the only real hand you can expect to check/call you in that spot in AQ, maybe a smaller Ax hand if he 3bets that and doesn't understand that he's always beat when you bet the river.

      Personally I usually go for value every time in similar spots regardless and end up getting shoved on a good amount of the time anyway, so if you think he's possibly weak/tight or tricky enough to check a better hand to you sometimes, it's not that big a deal to check it back.

      Hope it helps.
