      did i make the right fold here? his preflop play suggested strength, maybe some sort of high pocket pair or Ax. the problem i have with this hand is that he called my flop bet. he either made a very loose call with something like AK,AQ,AJ or something or he called with an overpair like AA,QQ,JJ,TT. i decided to check fold the second the ace came out because i didn't think i would be betting for value anymore, i would literally just be trying to push him off of the pot. i decided he had the ace when he bet into me although it is possible he noticed i was scared of the ace and exploited it...

      That's the problem with checking here I guess.. you're exposing yourself to the bluff.

      I think I would've gone with bet/fold. It seems unlikely that someone who just joined the table would check-raise you after you've shown consistent aggression.

      Especially on this flop, your flop bet is basically just a standard cbet, so if he has QQ/JJ he might call.

      There's a good chance you're beat of course.

      Hello DrDunne,

      What do you think how he plays JJ/QQ here? I mean how many hands will Call you on flop? Ax hands? Only A:hK or maybe at the best some weaker A:hQ or something similar. Therefore, I'd Check/Call the turn while he may easily even have something like JJ/QQ in his range and maybe even weaker PPs.

      Best regards.
