      Nh.. turn is a good fold.

      Depending on villain I may fold flop already.

      I personally think he has there random air if he lead out that board.
      If player had very low af, you can put him on K or 8x and fold on the turn, but here I think he may easily lead twice with AJ/AT type hands or decide to valuebet TT/JJ instead of c/c that hand.
      Your hand generally is too good to fold on the turn barrel and I think you often get to showdown if you have better hand, since players would not really 3-barrel with air that spot.
