      Preflop is this a value 3bet, or bluff? I think it's not good for value, because unlikely that worse hands will continue, and not good for bluff either, because it has no blocker, and can't flop good. We have a decent bluffcathcer type hand often, so I'd just try to play for a small pot, and just flat it IP.

      As played, I like your play on turn, can't imagine a value hand or decent draw plays like this, so calling is okay I think, to win one more streets value from his bluffs.

      It is for value, because he steals around 40% sb. Also he is aggro with 4bet blind versus blind, 4bet/folds often. So my plan was to shove this hand. He could also call AJ+, and it is still for value.

      Hi.

      40% isn't all that wide but if he has a really high 4bet (and if you have a really high 3bet %) then it should be ok. But if you are not that aggro then I don't like 3betting this.

      I think your postflop line is fine.

      Thanks.

      Would a flop cbet be bad? Villains range should be broadways and some Ax hands, shouldnt we protect rather than give him a freecard?

      I guess when you hit your set its easy to shove the river.

      Whats your line if you dont hit? Would you just try to check it down?

      Don't like cbetting here especially when we are going to get check/raised a ton. We check back and try to showdown, that's right. Don't see any value in betting and I don't think AQ is going to c/c Turn. AQ is likelier to lead the Turn as a bluff instead so we are mostly looking at some 9X/JX/TT type of hands, maybe some worse pocket pairs but I just don't see that much value in betting here.
