      Hey dzikson999,

      Without stats the default play is to fold preflop at these stakes.

      Even if you did have stats this particular 3bet is huge. Muck preflop.


      As played bet flop is good. I'd definitely bet turn on this texture. I think your sizing is good.

      Villain's turn raising range is mainly overpairs + sets + QT that decided to play tricky. You are hardly ever folding the best hand on the turn imo.

      Well rags are 3 beting 8+ % from blinds almost 90 % off them so why Ajs should be auto fold ?
      Do you think he slow playing AA or KK this way on hdb to c/call flop and c/shoves turn ( whouldnt he reraise flop with that hands?)
      Could he have 10 10 or AK s,AQ s type off hand and take this line ?

      Some regs 3bet 8%. Most don't at these limits. It's more like 2-4%. Don' t assume someone is 3betting light at these limits unless you have evidence.

      Also his 3bet is a non-standard sizing. Usually means that he isn't a good regular, and it's likely that he is strong. Won't be a profitable defend with AJs.

      I'm not going to try and justify villain's play. I don't think he is a good regular from his preflop bet-sizing. Just because re-raising flop (or even cbetting) strong made hands is the best play I don't think it means villain will necessarily do it.

      You basically just never see this line, period.

      Yup, he sure could. But assuming that it's even likely at these stakes will probably cause you to bleed money imo. The overwhelming likelihood is he has something like QT or a really badly played set/overpair.
