      You should stabb that turn, at least, because your hand still needs some protection for overcards and you can add some value against AK, AQ etc.

      The only reason I didn't stab the turn was because a min3bet means AA most of the time, and the guys doing that often check behind on the flop. When he checked behind the turn as well, however, I was sure I had him beat.

      Yes, min 3-bet is quite often AA, but not always, sometimes bad opponents want to play with as less money as possible there, if they don't hit. There's just this that when you bet river, you're not likely to get called by those AQ etc. they had. Betting turn and small value on river had been the most profitable option here, IMO.

      Of course, this is a bad situation anyway, but you'd had to fold anyway on a raise.

      Hello DarkBlade282,

      You can easily stab the turn and protect your hand whilst nobody has shown interest into the pot. But otherwise seems to be fine.

      Best Regards.
