      I`m wondering about the river check , because if he has a fullhouse or A in his hand I`m getting the most value out of this hand

      Hi Angalius,

      Preflop: What do we know about villain? If we can expect him to call often the 3-bet is fine, otherwise we are turning AQ into a bluff.

      Postflop: Remember that if he has an Ax hand you are always getting the money so that shouldn't be our concern.

      We should look at maximizing value versus the non Ax hands. Do you think we do that by checking? Villain type is important.
