      on flop should i shove? or should i fold?
      i think he can not have AK so 10 on turn doesnt scare me ... only AK+flushdraw scares me
      i wonder if he can do this play with AQ ...
      he mostly has a flush draw and a pair or SET ?

      Now all depends on your reads about your opponent... Againt passive one, this is solid fold. It's also quite close to fold against unknown, because his range could include QJ, KQ, AQ, JJ+. but I guess he wouldn't overplay it that much. By 3betting I'd said that he has only JJ, KK or QQ on his range there, no draws.

      So folding would be the best choise here.

      Hello bonecore,

      Well, I'd 3bet it a bit bigger vs the 3bb 3bet, though postflop should Bet a bit bigger and then even Bet/Fold it. His calling range will hardly contain JJ/QQ ranges and not sure how many Qx hands even would raise you there. :)

      Nor it doesn't make sense to call the flop to ship the turn, if you want to continue then get it in right on the flop, though should be rather Bet/Folding.

      Best Regards.
