$20 NLHE 6-max: TPTK in 3bet pot on paired board - river action?
I think this hand is interesting and would like some feedback.
Villian: Only have around 15 hands, he has a 23/25 and is quite aggro, although I'm not sure how much we can take from 15 hands. Anyhow; from the hands I've seen, he's not been like a crazy, he's played just a really TAG style.

BB checks, Hero ?
He does a standard cbet, but the interesting part is; he continues with another barrel on a brick card on the turn. Now, given this is my first "real" pot I've played, I know villian is thinking and double barreling this turn with bluffs is going to be horrid vs my range of hands, unless he thinks he can get me to fold a draw on the turn.
So; my question is, what do we do on the river we have 150bb behind and a pot with nearly 200bb in the middle and someone takes a bet/bet/check line? Is this usually weakness or is he checking hoping we barrel our worse hands on the river as bluffs or looking for a cheap show down? Given how much is in the pot and how much we have left behind, checking seems ok I guess when trying to narrow his range down as there's so few worse hands that will call a bet on the river. However; with that said; given how passively I played A,K is there a line we can take on the river where a player will call worse but will fold to a value looking bet? Like for example; if I just shove the river when checked too - am I more likely to get looked up lighter as opposed to if I stuck out a value bet?
