      What do you think what should I do on turn? I was afraiding of J or i want to turn my hand into bluff catcher? I donn't know why I was this hand playing like this. Its unprobable that he could have Jx probably AJ in 3 bet pot OOP i had to bet turn and check river right?

      Sorry i clicked post reply instead of Post new thread :) Was doing it on hurry.

      BEt 2 streets and then check-back the river. By checking turn you give your opponent a chance to improve their possible hands like AQ and AK (or even against QQ)

      Betting 3 str here isn't good, though, coz he ain't calling the river with airr.

      You can consider b/f turn 1.3$ and then take your free showdown, but since it sucks to get c/rai I also don´t mind check back turn and then call or valuebet yourself on blank rivers. Unless you want to make fold Jx hand I would not really never bet river for value or bluff, so check back is perfectly fine- KK that spot is enough showdown value.

      best regards,
