      Villian is a fish, 60/30/3.7 over 21 hands, seen him do some crazy moves with air.
      On the turn when the ace appeared I had in my mind that I can either shut down in case he's got the ace, or continue betting for protection due to the wet board. Decided on the latter.
      Should I have shut down?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      River: ($12.21) 4 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $12.21.

      MP3 wins with a straight, ace high(Q K).

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      Guess you can even make a smaller bet on turn like $2 and then might even consider rather folding. Because he will so often have either the AQ/AK type of float hand or basically you are even more behind. And I don't think that he is doing that in 3bet with with pure bluff.

      Best regards.
