      CO: $25.35 (101.4 bb)
      BTN: $23.89 (95.6 bb)
      SB: $25.60 (102.4 bb)
      Hero (BB): $25 (100 bb)

      MP3: $38.33 (153.3 bb) 18/13/1.3/344 vpip/pfr/af/hands 3bet:2.3

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A A
      3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.75, MP3 calls $0.75, 3 folds, Hero raises to $3.20, MP2 calls $2.45, MP3 calls $2.45

      Flop: ($9.70) 6 2 5 (3 players)
      Hero bets $5.20, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $5.20

      Turn: ($20.10) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $16.60 and is all-in, MP3 calls $16.60

      River: ($53.30) 3 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      When he just calls the pre flop raiser and then calls again my 3bet he could only have poket pairs: 22-JJ. So on the turn I think there is no weaker hand that can call me. Can I play here check/fold?

      Hi CleoClaudiu,

      Preflop: looks good

      Flop: Considering we are multiway and we'd rarely ever bluff here we can make all of our cbet's larger.

      By betting bigger on the flop we gain more value/protection and also make it easier for him to call "uglier" turn cards with a wider range.

      Turn: I think that 22-JJ is a bit tight. I can see villain also calling QQ/AK/AQ preflop (especially since he only 3-bets 2%). He may, rarely, slowplay KK like this too.

      Since we have the Ah he can't have those draws which is a bit unfortunate for us.

      If we are really confident on our reads, regarding range and tendencies, we could check/fold turn because villain is almost never betting a worse hand (maybe QQ and sets). And 77-TT check back almost always.

      However if we would have bet larger on the flop I'd still ship turn because it would be a 1/2 pot bet and villain can probably call those pairs more often.
