      55 hansd, VPiP 20, PFR 20 3bet BB 1/6

      Is check turn ok? Board is really bad, and I wanted to pot control, but bad thing is if he has fd or gutshot. River bet larger?

      Does any draw check the turn?

      He almost never has a draw, you don't have to be concerned with that. The only thing you need to think about is how often you get check/raised here because you do have a value hand but at the same time you have a redraw.

      My guess is not really often. However, this is the sort of spot where you need to know your opponent's range better. Snce you only have 55 hands, I think you can either bet or check, it's not a huge difference, however, most people don't expect you to bet AQ twice here so bet turn, bet river can get you some good value from worse Ax, KJ, QQ, KK that assumes you don't have AQ in your range but only hands like AJ, 88, JJ and busted draws.
