      at first i thought it will be turned AQ, but then thought that it might be as well so stupidly played Ax, Q4,Q6 and thought that he would bet smaller on the river with AQ

      Hello phantommm92,

      That's a very close spot actually and of course depends a lot on the opponent. Sometimes I might even just consider folding it right on turn when the opponent is rather very passive guy and plays mostly nuts. Just for the reason that it's a freeplay pot, although if he is somewhat maniac then it's totally fine, he may easily come up there with tricky played AK or whatsoever. Although it's definitely a strong hand, therefore it's rather close and of course take a note on him.

      Best regards.

      obv did take a note, will know more about opponents from thursday, getting my official HEM, which will work for rush :) which is defo nice and spotted some leaks, like cbetting too small for value.

      about the turn, if he had bet something like 1,3 then i might just fold it, but with this bet dont you think that calling and reevaluating the river would be better?

      It should be doable on the turn, although depends a lot on opponent. And of course congrats getting HEM, likely the best choice. :)
