      Is it ok to 5bet this size to induce ligher 5bets? I didnt like it much when he called me :)

      I almost folded on turn, since I expect his JJ to be passive, and he could slowplay TT, KK, AA, AK. Then I thought he would stack all those hands preflop, so probably he called with PP or broadways because he had good odds.

      First, consider your own pot odds when you face a 6b. 64/200 = 32% pot odds. Do you think you are committed here with your bluffs?

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 27.75% 26.30% 1.46% { AJo }
      MP3 72.25% 70.79% 1.46% { TT+, AQs+, AQo+ }

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 30.05% 28.68% 1.38% { A2s }
      MP3 69.95% 68.57% 1.38% { TT+, AQs+, AQo+ }

      You aren't, so this means that you can 5b/fold here. So I think the 5bet size is fine.

      As played postflop, I am going to check with the intention of never folding. AK jams pre, and we block KQ.
