      i played this badly. im not sure about the call preflop. villain is unknown, so i decided to call IP. when he chcked the flop i was suspicious since why would he 3bet OOP then check the flop unless he was planning on check raising with some JJ/KK? doubt he is playing that way with AQ or QT. with that in mind should i just give up on the flop completely and not call the turn?? at the time, i interpreted his flop check as weak, so decided to call the blank turn but then realised i was being roped in and slowplayed so i folded. check/fold flop, check/fold turn?

      Hello DrDunne,

      Preflop: We can't 4bet it either and while we are deep so why not to call? We could play it for an overpair and of course for set-mining.
      Postflop: Vs such a Bet on the turn I might even leave the pot alone, I don't see him betting this way with bluffs cause if he wanted to bluff he would have CB the flop and nor I don't see him betting this way with Jx. Most likely just a trap.

      Best Regards.
