      I donk like to flat AQ/KQ/AJ in this kind of situations, my results are really bad flatting here, even flat with AK arent giving me positive results, so i just 3bet turning my hand into some kind of semi bluff.
      Flop its kinda sick of a board, i cant take much value, and im behind if several hands, should i just give up? Bet once (flop or turn)? Call if he bets the turn?

      Hey Lunitis,

      Preflop 3bet is fine since you acknowledge it's a bluff. If you don't feel comfortable flatting with this hand it's a great hand to bluff with.

      You likely have best hand on the flop. Villain isn't calling with a lot of worse hands though. Check back is good, with the intention of calling at least one bet on decent board run-outs.

      Normally you'd bet the turn but the K is a bad card. Again you will struggle to get called by worse. Check back is fine.

      River is another bad card. Villain usually has a T or better. Folding is fine. If you had reads villain would bluff then you can call since your range does not look very strong.
