      as played im betting all streets and stacking off for sure. It's silly to Flop trips in a 3bet pot and think about folding. If you don't feel happy about the strength of your kicker, why 3bet in the first place? This logic is consistent so you might want to re-evaluate your 3bet strategy.

      Preflop: I'm assuming you are value 3betting your AJ? If that's the case, we want him to be calling with worse hands like AT/A9/A8/AXs, KJ, QJs, JTs etc. Ok I guess AT and A8 beat us on the Turn, but still, just stack off and don't worry too much about it.

      If you don't have a good feel about his preflop game, folding might be best even. Or just call. He seems a little fishy though so I'm not hating your 3bet and it could be a good thin value + isolation play

      Thanks for good explanation i just doubt because similar situation happened two times in a row both against short stack player and i start doubt in my play eventually. :D
      I'm not asking myself what hand beat me on turn and that was only AT and A8, stacking off with that hand I think is no brainer. :tongue:
