Wouldn't you want to check-call if he was bluffing because you have an Ace, and even if you're wrong you have outs?

If by trifecta you mean spewing on the turn...

Well no, because he might have any two overcards, in which case I don't want to let him check behind something like Kx on the river, and he may fold a hand sometimes that has 6 outs vs me. It just so happened that he had a good overpair here, but if you aren't checkraising the turn after checkraising the flop at least some small percentage of the time with less than top pair, I think you are giving up something.

Also, I'm confident in my read that he wouldn't 3bet here when I'm ahead, so I lose a fraction of a bet when I'm behind.
