      What do you think BB's 3bet cold calling range is? Do you have 3 streets of value vs such a range?

      AA (2 out of 6 combos)
      QQ (3 combos)
      JJ (3 combos)
      AQs (4 combos)

      Unless you know that villain has all combos of AQ and some combos of KQs, I don't think you have 3 streets of value here so you can check the Flop and bluff induce.

      Alternatively, you should bet Flop and check Turn. AS played I think it's ok to bet/call once but turn would be a really tough spot and I don't like the Turn push.
