      I thought BB was passive so very 2 pair+ heavy but his stack size made me shove.
      turn c/c was worse than b/f and c/f was too weak.

      What do you think my action?

      Flop: Given the stack sizes, I think you should have planned your bet sizes better. I would bet 2.50 on the Flop and just shove the Turn.

      Turn: This is a nasty spot here. Turn raises are usually nutted in single-raised pots. In 3bet pots, if let's say we had AQ and this were a 100bb situation, we should probably just bet/fold if he made a min-raise. From my experience even in 3b pots min-raises are usually nutted.

      As played, with AK I think we should call the Turn shove. With AQ it's close, and with AJ I think this is AQ+ most of the time so we should fold. But in the first place you should have just bet the Flop and shove the Turn.
