      BB was 75/43 45% agg. freq. 17,4% 3bet over 56hands.

      Which is better on the turn? Just call to let him bluff the river or shove for value? If he has Ax, i`ll probably stack him on the river and if he has a FD, he might bluff if he misses? I have position and he can`t have a lot of equity, so i decided to just call?

      On this river, i think that just a call is better?

      Turn: I think a shove would be a little too large but stack sizes are kind of awkward and min-raising is also awkward. Pot would have 50 on the river, and we would have 20 left.

      I suppose shoving is fine on the Turn, with so many draws on the Turn. And we do cooler A3/A6 which is pretty great, or maybe AcXc.
