Default 1/2 line check with AK (big draw) against likely set

villain is 22/9/1.3 over 30 hands or so, he should view me as somewhat LAGish, like 30/24/4 as I have gotten some hands lately.

once he bet the turn after raising the flop, I was almost certain that he had a set, but I still have 13 outs against that and I should get paid off if I do hit. Is the river betting size about right? I was going to push if I hit my flush (that's runner runner flush, he wouldn't think it's that likely) or straight. But now the card completes the flush draw on flop, I think pushing might scare him away, am I just thinking too much here and should have pushed allin?

there is no FE on the turn, villain has a set like 90%+ of the time. He's giving me a cheap card, why would I want to put more money in behind when I can safely fold or put more money in (and can reasonably expect to get called) on the river?

Do you not think he can have a AKc/ATc a lot of the time here? Min raise followed by small bet on the turn is v.weak IMO as a flop min raise with the goods is usually follwed by 3/4 pot or so, no? So he plays his big draw/ pair +draw 'aggressively' (for him- hes a nit remember) by betting 1/3 pot.

I think his range here is at least 35%% AKc/ATc/otheer random clubs and 65~% set. So I think there is definately a lot of value in betting river but I am insta mucking if he raises me given stats.

Thoughts?

I can't remember exactly why I had that read (probably because I saw him play some TP or big draw hands before), but I was very sure that this player is very unlikely to be betting 1 pair or drawing hand like this. FWIW, I was c/f to any decent size (&gt;2/5 pot) bet on the river if river is A or K.

his dumbass betting pattern looks like he is drawing to me. as played i c/c river.

i like a bet of about $50 on the turn - i think you will take it down a lot here and you have lottsa outs

we had this discussion before about the checkraise on the turn with my AQ last weak

remember, we decided that it wasn't the best line to take ??
