Firstly id always c bet that flop for about 450 since its raggy so its unlikely villain has hit. Also the moment you check that flop, villain will put you on nothing such as a,q, a,j etc etc.

Definate fire on the turn after youve checked flop so that standard

I wouldnt bluff the river however, since any hand that beats you, that called on turn thinking they had the best of it, will not think that river helped you at all, so will call this bet aswell. The river bet isnt driving out any hands that we beat. We may aswell check and hope our ace high is good against any drawing hands

As you sais, you think villain has a pp wanting to reach a cheap showdown and you have provided them with a relatively cheap showdown that they will call everytime

The lack of flop cbet and turn check probably have you pegged as air (worse than even flop bet, turn check, river bet); anyways, what happened?

As a one-off, one-time play based on a read, I don't mind the play. Even if you get called on the river this is good showdown value as it will have those that have been paying attention wondering if you had been bluffing earlier and may induce some loose lookups later on. If Vilian shoves over your river bet I just use a lot of my time bank and then fold and post in Chat something like 'AK must not be good here'

First i think he shouldnt call any of your bet with A-J with this flop and turn. He was maybe one of the many donkeys who plays a good hand until the hand hoping to catch some kind of miracle. Your bet on the river could have put you in trouble because if he had slow played a king or a nine and would have raised you would have commited way to more chips for a bluff. A check on the river would have minimize your chance of losing a lot of chips.
