      Flop: Fold flop unless BU's opening range is really wide, his Flop cbet range is really wide (90%-100%), and he is not aggressive on future streets. We have very poor equity vs way too many of his hands.

      Turn: This is spewy. Don't like it at all.. If you want to scare him, make a larger raise to 4 or 4.50 and pot the River.

      But I don't think you should do that. I would prefer doing it with a hand like QJ, something which blocks off combos of AJ/JJ from his range so that he is less likely to have a monster which can call you down.
