      FFS, I keep getting 3betted constantly, it's so sick. When I try it out, of course I dont even hit my A, my J, and not even the straight here. And of course the guy doesnt fold.

      What hands do you think villain can fold on the turn that did not fold the flop?

      In other words what do you expect his flop calling range to be?

      Do you expect to have FE (which implies that we expect villain to have a floating range)?

      FLOP: Can I bet for value?-no?
      Can I bet as a bluff? Against many hands yes.

      TURN: yeah, makes no sense to 2ndbarrel

      Maybe the whole problem started preflop. I should just flatcall it I think. Folding AJ seems just weak, it's a pretty good hand in HU spot.

      3-betting preflop as a bluff is fine and betting flop as a bluff is also fine. Pairs and the occasional AK can still fold (better hands).

      Calling against a tigther MP range may lead you to a lot of problems postflop so I'd prefer to actually fold if I'm not 3-betting until we gather more information about villain.

      I think on flop you have to check/fold.

      Remember its a 3 bet pot, meaning his range should be on the higher side so we might not have a lot of fold equity against him. He can even float with some hands which have a draw+overcard and when we don't 2nd barrel then he can make us lay our hand down easily.
