      I don't expect him to peel very light as we are 3 way on the flop and since he can have all flushes in his range I think river fold is fine.

      No read in the bet size, he has been betting big both as a bluff and for value

      Hi.

      Seems that there's an error with the hand.

      Hi.

      As played, I think this is a very good spot for villain to turn his entire range into a 2 street bluff. If I had QQ or KTs in his shoes, I would just bet Turn or River. I think it's kind of obvious you have something better than one of those weaker made hands I mentioned earlier when you c/c the Turn so potting Turn and River to rep the flush makes a lot of sense.

      So I would c/c T and R vs an aggro player.

      With regards to the Turn play, if he is a station which I suspect he is, especially if you have aggro image, I would just fire Turn and River myself. I don't think he is folding KQ and KJ when you are going to be perceived to be bluffing the classic scare-card Ace quite a bit and maybe following through with some 3rd barrels.

      Thanks.
