      MP: $25 (100 bb)
      Hero (SB): $25 (100 bb)
      CO: $25.87 (103.5 bb)
      BTN: $35.89 (143.6 bb)
      BB: $14.12 (56.5 bb)
      UTG: $12.50 (50 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A Q
      UTG calls $0.25, MP folds, CO raises to $1, BTN folds, Hero raises to $3, 2 folds, CO calls $2

      Flop: ($6.50) Q 7 J (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.25, CO calls $3.25

      Turn: ($13) J (2 players)
      Hero ???

      37/22, fold to cb 38, afq 47, wtsd 15, 150 hand

      Saw him once checkbehind AQ on Q27r flop as PFR, so I think he is not so agressive. What should we play on the turn? If we bet, then it have to be bet/call, because of the SPR, or can we bet/fold because of our read that he plays TPTK passively? Check/call maybe?

      Hi DarkAwi,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Villains AFQ is pretty high so he may have some floats there. I'm definitely not folding our hand here when he can easily have KQ and even some other broadways with draws.

      The fact that we saw him check AQ on Q27r once shouldn't incline us to change our strategy 100%. He may like to float and bet a lot when checked to (since his higher afq) so I would most likely ck/shove there. It's unfortunate that we have the As because that reduces the number of flush draws he can have.

      Thanks for the quick reply :)

      I planned to check/call turn, because not too much draw in his range that could call the turn shove, but maybe bluffs with them on the river. (high afq, low wtsd)

      Flop: ($6.50) Q 7 J (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.25, CO calls $3.25

      Turn: ($13) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($13) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $8.23, Hero folds

      So after he checked back, he is either slowplaying a Jx, or pot controll with a Qx (maybe TT-99). I don't think he would check back his draws. Got a bit confused, but in the end, I ended up check/folding, because only KQ could call if I bet,I think, I've been thinking about check/calling if he bet smaller, but this seemed Jx to me, he don't really have bluffs in his range because of the turn check, and wouldn't bet KQ or weaker with this big size. Thoughts? Weak? :)

      I think that ck/folding our hand (TPTK) in a 3-bet pot is really weak.

      Villain can also have 3-rd pair type hands and weaker Qx like QT so I would at least consider bet/folding the river.
