      I doubt he did bluff against my sarrow range.
      However, I had TPGK and I didn't fold because he can't represent too many made hand. what do you think his range?

      PS I immediately made notes about his rude move..

      I think since you are 100bb deep sometimes have to 3bet this small out of position because the board can turn really ugly for you and against competent people it is a hell to have this hand out of position as they can just pressure you all the time

      Now here you play against a kind of passive dude so calling is fine as I do not expect to get in tough spots. The Turn is for me a check/call because it blocks AQ & gives him the best scarecard :)

      But it went to showdown so it is all good + you can make a note of it
