a,5 a,j j,5, 5,5 4,4 j,j a,a even a,k may check this flop as if it's the nuts. He may even have kings or queens and for whatever reason is raising not thinking you have an ace.
The more plausable question is name a hand where it makes sense for him to check behind on the flop and raises on the turn that you beat?
If he really has air why would he check flop then raise turn??? Surely with nothing he cbets the flop?? If he is raising with a draw, why wouldn't he bet the flop with the draw?? I seriously don't think you beat anything here.
fwiw i don't mind the turn bet since we may be able to eek out some value from lower pp's/king highs that think they are good or chasing a gutshot.
But checking is certaintly easier, the best line is probably check/calling the turn then check/re evaluating river, or betting river if villain checks turn behind
