      Hi,

      If you want you can also 3-bet pf. AJs should be strong enough hand for that.
      Postflop: I think lead is reasonable, since it is hard you to c/c and you can also barrel for example Q, K and spades, valuebet Jx and maybe bet or c/c with Ax.
      I don´t like c/r turn and then fold to shove. First I think your hand isn´t strong enough to c/r turn and it is hard him to call with worse hands, so I would prefer c/c him down and another mistake imo is to fold to shove. If you take such weird line you can also expect players to shove wider than AK+ that spot, like draws or maybe worse Ax hands, so imo calling is better than folding after taking c/r line.
