      I usually fold the turn.
      When he pots there it looks like he's protecting, and in my opinion even KQ would not bet that big so we're usually crushed against 2pais, sets and overpairs.

      Once we do call the turn, on the river the same applies just that his range is even stronger as it probably doesn't contain overpairs anymore.

      True... he wouldn't bet like that with KQ on turn... I had a feeling I'm beat... should have folded.
      thank you so much :]

      Is it better to 3bet pre-flop with hands like AQ against a lot of opponents? I just find you know where you are a lot more when you 3bet, and its always better to have the initiative

      I guess it's only good if he folds to your 3bet, otherwise, u can dig a deep hole for yourself with that kind of initiative! xD
