      On tilt playing this hand to be honest and tilt posted here. I 3-bet and don't expect him to show up with a 9 here. He can easily have JJ or TT. Should I just C/f the turn? In his range he probably only ever folds AJ to my shove turn and my equity against the rest of his holdings probably isnt that great. A decent evaluation would be appreciated though.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Yeah, actually It's veeeery close play, I'd rather play Check/Fold, since he would really bet there with a lot worse and also we can't really Call his shove since we will often have bad equity. Also the shoving equity + fold equity shouldn't be that great to make such a move profitable in long run.

      Best regards.
