      hey I 3bet him because on the button he raises like 30% of hands with A q you have much more. On the flop maybe I should re raise him a bit bigger to shove anyways the turn as I am committed? Or bet less the turn? thanks

      to say bet more on the flop and shove the turn?

      With this line its very hard to get value from any weaker hands on turn, maybe only KQ.

      I think flop is fine, turn is hard to say. You'd think he has Qx or flush draw and not a lot else maybe A3 A2 and doesn't believe you hit. You don't want to give him a cheap river card, but you also don't want to scare him away from calling with a worse queen. I think half pot again is good, but then you are out of position on the river and face a very difficult decision if third club falls because you're committed. And of course, results aside, he can already have us beat with a set or two pair on turn but this is less likely.

      Will be interested to see what a judge says on this, its a tricky spot. Is villain someone you'd be happy to stack off TPTK to?

      Hello cekpirus88,

      If you want to shove the turn then make a bigger bet on the flop and then shove. If you play it this way then rather make a smaller Bet on the turn and let him call with weaker holdings.

      Best Regards.
