      We play against 37/15 AF 1,3 player. On the turn I want give him a chance to bluff or bet a weaker hand which he is otherwise folding to my bet. Is this ok or we should consider bet/fold, check/fold?

      Interesting situation there.

      Preflop 3betting is of course the best thing to do and your sizing is good.

      On this board I think your flop bet is fine - there are a lot of draws, and making it on the bigger side and preparing a shove on the turn is good.

      Turn card really sucks and this is the best card. Qx beats us, FD now got there and I'm not really sure how often he is going to continue with worse hands.
      I don't mind check/folding here if he bets something big.
      Against this bet I'd probably just fold again and wait for a better spot.
