Does my line really look that bluffy.

It doesn't show, but I'm guessing villain looked you up with AK/AQ.

On paired boards and - especially boards with trips - villains just won't give you credit for a hand. On this board, villain won't put you on a jack (which is why you can fast play quads), but by the turn he should at least put you on a boat of some sort, but because it would be pretty spewy to be barreling with ace high, given the pre-flop action. The 4 and 2 are complete blanks (even if you had pocket 4s, you have the same hand as A4), which is why villain might call with AK, but I'd be pretty worried you are value-owning yourself when you take this line.
Did it not occur to you that villain can have QQ+? I know he only min-3bet pre, so he's a bad player, but to 3-bet vs UTG, I'd put him on QQ+ and AK/AQ every time. TT is in bad shape against that range, so I wouldn't be donking out and betting three streets with TT.

I mean, what do you think is calling you when you lead out on every street?
