      Tough spot on the turn and river. I think his 3 bet calling range is 77-TT and AQ-AJ. On the turn I am in a very tough spot as only TT( 1 combo) beat me, as I think he will raise with AJ on flop. Do you agree with the line? Is bet/fold turn a better line here?

      I would prefer c/c turn to let him bet his floats. If you don´t see players shoving too often on the river with bluffs you can fold there, since their shoving range is likely AJ+

      best regards,
