      I think we don't. I would put him on some sort of an overpair or a big ace. Against AK,QQ-TT we have 34% equity, that's why I would call him.

      Hi Noulispa,

      PReflop: Are we 3-betting as a bluff this somewhat strong hand?

      I'd prefer a call preflop here.

      Postflop: We only invested 0.5 until the turn so there is 1.4 left.

      Now if we bet 1/2 pot we leave ourselves 0.9 behind and thus give ourselves 23% pot odds and our draw, if A or J aren't live only gives us about 18% equity.

      However considering the villain type we should not expect flop floats and thus we can't expect much to fold on the turn (most of his range is overpairs). So I don't mind trying to bet something small like 0.3 so we see a cheap river and if villain is not very aggressive he'll just call his overpairs because he may be afraid of the straight. If he is aggro this small bet won't really work.
