Opponent with a good reg.
I want to defend my flop check range (Jx Tx) some aces . I think for many people it is standard.
The turn bet for value vs KK QQ KJ QJ KT QT,
just on the turn we have some hands with which we want to bluff : fd (87,86 etc) 45.

On the river, I'm doing a big bet , because opponent range capped in my eyes.
And we still can get some value from middle pair, but villian goes all-in, i think that our opponent understands our range after the check-check flop does not contain many hands that are ahead Ax(AQ AT AJ KQ JT - all these hands we bet on flop).
The only hands that ahead of Ax its 33&A3s= 3 combinations. Opponent may have here AA KQ.
I think opponent can quite safely go all - in with any Ax and print a lot of money against my strategy.

How can we counter this ?:
---Bet flop with weak Ax?
---Check the flop with some KQ?
---Check flop with some AQ AJ AT?
---Does not bet river with Ax?
---Call with a weak Aces on the river , despite the fact that in the best case we will share bank?
---Something else ?
