Hi, villain is playing 24/21/7 AF=0.6 C-bet=53% over 288 hands.

How to play hands like this ?
Should I check raise the flop to make Jx or perhaps Ax to fold ? If so, should I continue the aggression on a blank turn ? and give up on a blank river ?

I got a little confused on how to play this hand and end up choosing the passive way.

This hand should play differently to the T9s hand you posted because you're out of position.

I'd consider either donkbetting or check-raising here, with my preference being for check/raising. This allows you to take the initiative postflop and increases the pot for when you hit your flush or T. You need to build the pot now because it is unlikely you will get paid anymore once the flush hits the board.
Taking this line will also get him to fold out his PPs and Jx hands that are currently beating you.

I think just giving up on the river is fine, I still think villain will show up with a pot-controlled Ax often enough here to not make a river bet worthwhile. Then again you could be repping A3, maybe A4/A2. I would assume that both plays are pretty similar EV-wise.
