      Haven't got any info on CO. I raise the flop for value from weaker As and for info. Him 3betting me does mean he's got a strong hand. Either 6x oder Ax (AQ and AK very unlikely). And I have the odds for calling against that range.
      I don't think the turn bet changes much (still 6x or Ax). So my options are call turn / call river, fold turn or raise turn. Looking back now raising seems to be the worst decision, as I might get some lower As to fold.

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Do you really think that he would 3bet that often with weak Ax this way? Doubt that, rather has the 6x which is trapping. Therefore I'd basically Raise/Fold on flop and why can't he have AQ/AK in his range?

      Best regards.
