      This could be 3bet for value or called down to have a dominating Ace? Or is it not good to call a dominating hand like this OOP?

      I know if I was button or cuttof and I had Ax on a A high board, against a blinds caller I'd probably throw a couple of barrels at it :f_biggrin:

      Postflop, why not bet the turn, he showed weakness checking the flop, will call you with worse J's and maybe PP's

      either play is fine, but this of course depends on the BTN

      if the BTN is a loose opener, i mix it up between 3betting and calling
      when you call, you often let him valuebet himself(provided you have some post-flop skill) because he opens a lot of Ax hands on the BTN

      I would prefer 3-bet, although since you´re deep I think call and playing pot control postflop is likely a little better option. Postflop I would lead turn and river for- if he happens to hit J, he would call down with worse hands and also he would very likely call at least once AK/AQ.

      best regards,
