      Villain looked solid over a small sample. I thought it was a good spot to test how a reacts to 3bets.

      Should we keep inducing on the turn?

      Looks good. Villain will be calling broadways to our 3bet and we represent the Ace so well that on the flop he will usually just fold if he doesnt have a good draw, its also a form of pot control.

      On the turn we of course need to start putting money in the pot.

      Vs hands like 99/1010/JJ, we may get more value from checking back and then betting as he will think we bet Ax on the flop, he may even bet these hands himself on the turn.
