      Context: Hero has been actively raising preflop, and has pressed some people out of pots recently. Villain has been playing carefully and solidly.

      I would like to discuss/analyze this hand in detail because I find it interesting. You can go over every street, every action, but I am interested in the turn play the most. From both points of view....what should Hero do and what should Villain do?

      Should hero 3bet the turn? What will villain call with?
      Should villain call the turnshove? Should he even have raised? If not, what should his river plan have been?

      Hello nickvdb1990,

      For Hero it's quite clear what to do there. If we want to continue then we get it in there and protect our hand, no way to give him away the odds. Or either we just fold it. :P Wont change much on the river anyways, we beat all the hands on the turn which we beat on the river.

      Villain play is also not the best cause he wont get called either from worse nor he doesn't really protect his Ace. :D So what's the purpose of it? We ain't shoving it with worse either, at least 2pairs+ there.

      Best Regards.
