      131 hands 24/17/ 31 steals

      I think my hand has more value in 3bet pot against him.

      If we cbet he folds everything except Ax. I think there is more value if we check and he decides to protect his Ax hand. When he checks I know I'm not getting his stack.

      I bet big on the turn because I think if he decides to call he will call me. I should've bet $2,15. I bet under 2 because 2,15 looks like a pot and he folds almost everything. When he calls I hope for no h to shove it in.

      In the end I decide to go for smaller value instead of shoving. He's probably calling a shove with 2 pair, straight and J, T high flush.

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Well, your line is fine. If he even has the Ax he is betting it anyways and at the same time he might even bluff you. Although I'd most likely bet it bigger on turn & river while he even is more inclined to Call there. Could even be that he went for pot control with Ax.

      Best Regards.
