I'd rarely check two streets here unless they were very trappy. 3-bet then check means there scared of the Ace without a read. Right now I lean towards betting the turn around half pot.

I also like betting the turn halfpot. What are you worried about? You almost always have the best hand. Also, you have potentially deceived your opponent into thinking you don't have an ace, by checking back the flop. So you have two great ingredients for getting paid.

On the river I think you are probably behind, because of their bet size. If they were going to bluff, they would have done it earlier. Instead they bet huge. Also not likely to be a worse value hand for that reason. Tough fold, but this is a hand you shouldn't be checking down in the first place.
