Default Is This A Leak Or Standard?

$33 Stars Blinds 50/100, 7 Players, Hero approx 3000, Villan approx 3500.

Dealt to Hero AK

Villan UTG raise to 200
Hero calls mid-position.
All others fold.

Flop A,Q,7, Rainbow

Villan checks,Hero 275, Villan Calls.

Turn 4 (completes rainbow)

Villan checks, Hero 400, Villan Calls.

River 8

Villan checks, Hero?

My tendency is to check behind here, thinking that a caller will be beating tptk and hating a re-raise...

Is this standard or a bit weas, as villan has shown no strength throughout the hand?

Put yourself in Villains shoes for a second... if he really had a monster it's unlikely he'd check the river unless he's getting really fancy. He'd want to extract maximum value from a monster and checking the river doesn't necessarily achieve that. If he had bet the river i would only call, but since he's checked, i'm betting here and making him pay for getting involved in a hand with Ace-inferior kicker.

Hero calls, Villain flips AJ/AT?

I tend to check behind in these positions, I'm really not keen on getting bluffed out when i have a good stack and a nice pot that looks like it's coming my way.

These are quite likely considering the mini-raise, as is KQ. Heck, villian may have a pair of 9s. Bet the river.

I would however have got more chips in the pot at some point before the river.

I think checking behind on the river is pretty standard.

I would generally bet, as I think an inferior hand will call a reasonable bet often enough. But, like Lorinda, I would probably have put more money in the pot earlier.

Everything you did was right. Don't worry about the rainbow as much as an AQ, i've seen people call down with two pair soooooooo many times. Although no bet by villain on the river leads me to believe AK is the best hand, betting the river seems like it will lose more money in the long run.
