      why can't AK-AJ call here? i would assume a decent amount of 88-JJ call here as lots of players at these limits hate folding pre. i dont think these hands would 4bet considering your 3bet is massive and seems strong.

      villain's turn and river bets seem weighted towards getting calls, if villain is bluffing t/r why bet <.5 pot on turn?
      i wouldnt be surprised to see AJ-AK/99 and a small amount of missed broadway flush draws

      Hello staktas,

      Not a huge fan of turning hand into bluff-catcher like that. Whilst actually BB has tons of better Ax combos which have you beat and you practically never know where you even stand once if you go for Check/Call.

      Best Regards.
