      PF i don't 3b because I don't want to transform my hand into bluff.Flop I think it's a call, now on the turn should I check behind? And on the river what is his donking range? Does it contains bluffs?

      Hi.

      I think we definitely do not have 3 streets of value on the Turn with AJ vs such a tight player opening from MP. We should check back the Turn and call River or bet if checked to.

      Thanks.

      as played river fold is fine? we don't beat anything from utg range what play like that. I mean bet x/c donk looks like value line and I don't see worse hand playing like that

      yeah i wouldn't mind making an exploitable fold. to be honest it looks mostly like AT to me. And we can just fold AJ which is pretty much the weakest Ace in our range that we are betting on the Turn.

      With AQ it gets closer, maybe making a fold here with AQ is also fine but if I had AK in my range here I'm never folding it. It just feels too strong to do so.
