      $50.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players

      SB: $231.63
      BB: $49.60
      UTG: $46.50
      MP: $61.98
      CO: $103.09
      Hero (BTN): $96.40

      Pre Flop: ($0.70) Hero is BTN with A :spade: K :spade:
      UTG raises to $1.50, 1 fold, CO calls $1.50, Hero raises to $6, 2 folds, UTG calls $4.50, CO calls $4.50

      Flop: ($18.70) 9 :club: 3 :heart: 6 :diamond: (3 players)
      UTG checks, CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($18.70) A :club: (3 players)
      UTG checks, CO checks, Hero bets $10.00, UTG folds, CO raises to $25, Hero folds

      No info at all. I did not cbet, since no pair would fold on this flop imo. Checking behind on the flop indicates that I have some kinda AK, AQ hand, yet I get raised. I don't see him bluffing in this spot very often, what do you think?

      Heyo,

      I agree with your thinking and he could be good enough to realize you always bet Ax on turn plus it's no danger if flush or straight draws get there since you don't have them in your range if you check turn. If you bet turn, you have them in your range but now it's clear he can also get value with his sets and 2pairs. It's not a play that you see often but I usually found it to be a set and I do think it's a good play by villain, the only problem is they usually never have bluffs in their range as well which makes for an easier decision in Hero's shoes.
