      I am always not sure what to do with AJ or KQ hands preflop in such situations? I tend to sometimes 3bet, sometimes call. Depends on my history with villain.

      Now, when such player checks this flop, I really think he's weak, and after he only calls a bet on this board as a PFR, makes me even more convinced.

      Turn is an interesting card. That miniraise is obviously a try to represent a flush, but since he did not c-bet flop, I do not believe it. And while I don't want to see any more spades, I simply shove it.

      Is this not an overplay?

      Hello Pkrpains,

      Not much I would play here differently. Especially him having even worse 2pairs in his range there and maybe even bluffs. Against very passive opponents we might even consider folding the hand. If we decide to continue then we ship it as you did.

      Best Regards.
