      With those 3-betting stats, I would just 4-bet pre-flop and get it in. However, as played, your shove on the turn will only get it in against better hands. Rather call down and let him sometimes keep betting AJ/AT.

      It's however always hard to check/call 3 barrels when he is polarized between monsters and bluffs. Especially on NL10, I don't think you have him beat often enough, so if I decide to play this way, I will probably fold river.

      In general, you should avoid these OOP spots by simply 4-betting or folding most of the time. Calling 3-bets OOP is not something that you should do often.

      Hi Gregor86,

      I'd be interested to know the sample of those stats.

      If the guy is so aggressive and is 3betting all the time you should open tighter, 4bet wider for value and balance that range with bluffs.

      I don't think calling the 3bet with AQo is going to be profitable here as we are going to be very prone to make mistakes imo. If you think he is 3betting all Ax and barreling nuts TP then your play makes sense, otherwise I think you need bigger sample and a stronger preflop plan.

      Best regards.
