Default Inducing a bluff

Commerce 40/80. Game is playing very very tight and it's not that great, but we're about to break (and unbeknownst to me I'm about to move to an awesome game for the last 2 hours of the night).

Folded to me in the CO, I open AQ. SB calls, BB folds.

Flop 855. Check, I bet, he calls.
Turn A. He checks, I check?

(Plan is for him to bet the river and I raise any card that isn't an 8, T, or J.)

can you either fold to a c'r on the turn or get c'rd by a worse hand?

b/c to me sb looks like a weak ace, a small pair or a 5 (Assuming the sb isn't aggressive but just weak/tight).

i think this might not be the place to induce since you have a good amount of value to get if he'll call down w/ a pair / ace.

but it really just depends on the sb. how passive is he/she?

how tight? (would he/she fold a low pair now?)

if the sb is the right kinda person (where a c'r isn't easy to play against) then inducing is fine.

Do you give up when you have JTs?

The play works much better online than live, and only if you check behind without an Ace.

Im betting all my weak hands here so I want to be betting my strong hands too. If I was going to check behind here it would either be with KQ or KK.

If you don't think he has anything, why raise the river? If you think he has a 5, why raise the river? If you think he has an ace, why not bet the turn?
