      Hi.

      3bet preflop seems fine. On the flop i am definitely not folding. Bet/call once and decide on turn. we have an easy fold on club turns, we are obviously never folding heart turns, and on blanks we have a tougher spot. Coordinating cards are bad cos they complete some broadway gutshot straight draws, blanks are probably good for calling again if villain is capable of barreling.

      Thanks.

      If i dont fold should i just shove? He wont fold flush draw..
      The thing is...when i call the flop im saying that have at least Ax, would he try to make me fold Ax?!

      I think it's pretty obvious that he's committed so I think we are mostly in a shove or fold spot.

      What's his opening range here? I think he can have all combos of JcTc Tc9c QcJc QcTc. ALso useful to have his 4bet stat. If he's really aggro here I Think he is not going to have AK that much. I really doubt he has AQ AJ here so I Don't mind just shipping on the Turn.

      If he bet smaller on the TUrn I would probably call and decide river though. IMO he is likelier to be making a committing bet with some draw.

      Ok so that means he almost never has AK/KK/AA here. And I don't think people c/r AQ here when deep especially if there is no crazy dynamics. I would just ship here and hope he has a draw most of the time.

      I also don't think he has A3s/33 very often, given how often he folds to 3bers.
