      Hi, :D

      Villain is unknown.
      I c/shove the Turn to try to rep the FD. I don't like it because it is high variance.
      Do you think raise Turn to $1.5 is good?
      How do you play this hand?

      Thanks.

      Hey JHTAN!
      I think I'll bet again on the turn. It's highly unlikely that both blinds got an ace and the flushdraw is still there, I wouldn't like to give him the river card for free.

      Hi BadeaCelRau, :)
      Nowadays, people are just float happy. So, I want to check/raise on Turn to induce Villain to bet on Turn but unluckily he bets so small.

      Hey JHTAN,

      Against unknown I have to agree with Badea and you should just barrel turn again for value from draws and weaker Axs. If you check/raise turn you represent a very strong hand and thereby kind of turn your A7 into a bluff because I'm not sure people will call you there with A3-A6.

      If you have some kind of read villain is float happy then you can check/raise or even check/call turn, but I don't like it against unknown.

      Best regards,
