      We are BvB, and he is raising a lot on the flop, so I didnt think about folding. As I have the A, I called flop, and planned to chRAI any blank turn, and ch/call any X turn with my nut redraw.
      If I dont have the A, would be better to 3bet flop right away?

      With AA no haert I would get it in on the flop. With this hand I like to just call and keep his range wide even though he has position and may check the turn behind.

      But why would you shove the turn and make only his air fold and his nuts call you? I would just call him down.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      The problem with your play is that you are allowing him to see a free card, not we can't even be sure if he is going to 2nd barrel after our Call-down there. Therefore instead just 3bet it and get it in instead.

      Best Regards.
