      Hi.

      After you bet 5 on the Turn, you will have $11.55 left on the River and the pot will be $19.10. I think that's fine, you can even bet smaller on both Flop and turn so pot will have something like 17-18 and you will have 12-13 left.

      Turn is kind of a nasty spot. It improves T9s/QTs/KJ/TT so I don't really mind folding to the Turn jam. But this guy is aggro, maybe sometimes he jams a worse Queen like QJ or KQ, or maybe he floats Flop with a wide range and just jams a Turn draw. Maybe sometimes he jams AQ here for protection - Sometimes he gets a light call from your KQ/QJ type of hands, and he's never folding AQ on blanks anyway to your AA/KK.

      I would call KK here by default as it blocks combos of KJ, and I think calling here with AA is also fine. AQ is close and I would always fold KQ.

      Thanks.
