      Checking the turn is rather weak here.
      His push might be a bluff, because it's a huge overbet.

      Maybe you should have lowered your flopbet to 2/3pot.
      Then the pot on the turn wouldn't be so big, so you can consider making another 2/3pot bet.

      But once again, I'm not sure here, because Ax is a big part of Villains range.
      But the fact the shoves the turn surprises me, I can't imagine he would do that when he holds the best hand...

      I maybe would have done the same on the turn as you, but I'm not sure if it's the best thing...

      I think you did well. Would've played that hand the same.

      With a double stack you don't need to invest all your money when the overcards are on the board. Tough luck, but played well.
