      Hi,

      On the flop I was thinking that most of the time he has AK in this situation, but I can't really exclude JJ. Can he have KK QQ and raise the flop? At the time I bet so small on the turn because my plan was to b/f, but now that I think about it I could have played it more aggressively, what do you think?

      Hello,

      How much does he fold against 3bet?

      If he is folding a lot I would just flat. If he does not, I'd go for a 3bet but I'd make it $1.1.

      I think that without information the flop is a bet/fold here. We are almost always against a better hand once he raises us here.

      As played, what's the point in betting the turn? There are no worse hands that would call here, neither better hands to fold, so I'd just check/fold here.

      On the river checking is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen
