      Definitely not folding Flop. It is interesting to note that he checkraises AJ on AQ5s board so maybe you might consider 3betting the flop in the future if you think he stacks off AJ and AT and a bunch of worse hands often enough.

      If he's the type to make "tester bets", and raise to see where he's at, then I call to keep his worse AX hands in. As played I fold turn because AJ and KT now beats us. Of course if you think he raises Flop with many flush draws or stuff like KQ and KJ which will continue firing the turn then you can probably call again. But I'm not liking this J turn for sure. I'm probably calling a blank Turn but folding on a diamond and folding on a J or T.

      However if you think he bets the Turn again with AT/A9 and a bunch of other worse Aces and will check the river, then i call and fold river.

      Hello Lumonster,

      Well, the turn is just very bad for you and calling it doesn't really make sense. You should rather get it in and protect your hand meanwhile there are draws possible if you think he has so wide range. :) I'd most likely just fold the turn.

      Best Regards.
