My question here is should i check to induce or is the lead shove correct? I thought during the game that AA-KK would call anyway, AQ might call but maybe wouldn´t value shove the river if i checked. As to his bluffs most of them would be Axstd which would normally check on that runnout given he beats some of my FDs if i somewhow have them and my value range would be KQ+ and have a difficulty folding in general.
On the river you must do the exact opposite. The reason is that the texture of the board strongly impacts your range, which means that your opponent's range is quite weak. So if you press in this place, the villain will have a much simpler decision, because you allow him to give up all the dominated hands. If hj is a good player check your monster so he can bluff his AK OTR. Eventually the villain will also check behind, but you will give him a chance to keep his bluffs.
Yeah given Hero's line I think it's better to x river or possibly put out a tiny bet that may look like a blocker to induce. I'd x/r though given Vs stats. If you're worried about the river going x/x then you can also min click the turn and lead river. The min-click should get action from most paired hands flush and straight draws and may even get looked up by AKo. When we jam river we are hoping V will try and bluff catch but I think this is a long shot.

The best option here is to bet 1/3rd pot on the river to make it look like some kind of blocker bet. Going large on the river is going to raise eyebrows when you call a large bet on the turn. We want to induce action here and not give a reason for villain to fold. You could think about min raising the turn but that usually looks strong so you will wind up getting a lot of folds with that move. By making the fake blocker bet on the river we can get villain to possibly call based on the price we are giving them and we also give them a chance to completely tool out and raise us on the river (less likely but always possible).
I am not a huge fan of checking the river here as I would be too afraid that if villain does not have a jack they would be checking behind every time. If they do have a jack then the fake blocker bet will work perfectly. If villain is a barrel type player than checking could work but I dont like being in that spot and hoping that villain opens the action when they dont have too and we hold so many of the cards that block villains strong holdings.
