      not really sure I like b/f turn.
      It is 3-bet pot and you have quite strong hand. If you don´t think you can b/c turn that spot (and he isn´t shoving worse hands), then I´d prefer c/c turn and c/c river to let him bet his floats. If turn goes c/c I´d valuebet river myself to get value his medium pp-s.

      Ok, but he suddenly overbet/shoves turn. With what worse hand? 99-QQ? Flush draw? A2-A4? I've shown aggressiveness preflop and on flop and turn. Why would he bluff shove vs. an unknown?

      I folded because I put him on a better ace or a flush. I just don't see what value I can expect to get from calling. Unless I hit an A or a 5 on river.

      If he floated KcQx/KcJx he would shove that hand over your turn barrel.
      Ofcourse he can have there better hands, but in 3-bet pot players would not really like to give up that easily and may easily float you on boards where they expect you to c-bet 100%
