Default 25/50 Hand vs. Spirt Rock

I think this is standard, haven't posted in a while though so here we go...4 handed, I open on button with Ah Ks, SR calls in BB. He calls loosely because he pushes me around postflop and I don't do much about it.

Flop is As Ts 8h, he checks, I bet pot of $375 (normally here btw I'd bet $300 with a pair of aces so I bet pot to mix it up), he minraises to $750 I call. As I said, he pushes me around post flop but don't forget that he's spirit rock so he's good and not crazy.

Turn is 4h, he checks, pot is $1700 or $1600, I bet $1400, he hesitates and calls. Pot is $4500, we both have $2500 left, river comes 8s, he checks, I go all in.

It's close between a check behind or the all in on the river, but with your read, I think all in was the right move.

What possible winning hand can SR be checking on the river?

Other than checking the river, this seems pretty standard and boring. Betcha he folded, didn't he?

He either has a huge hand, or a very weak one.

Why would he check-call the turn with a "very weak" hand, and make no attempt to steal the pot on the river? Or perhaps a better question might be, what do you consider to be "very weak" in this case?

Anything from AT, knowing hero has a bigger ace and who thinks his hand just improved dramatically...to the boat thinking hero will bet the flush.

So then you want a call on the river, right? So then why do you move in? Is this more likely to be called then a bet that is a fraction of given pot?
