      Preflop, i could 4bet, but he was folding a lot to 3bets (no info for 4bets (he folded once to 4bet)), so i think that calling is better.

      I think the flop is standart.

      On the turn? With 2 FD`s out there, i thought that shoving is better? He might not fold AK/AQ. He might also call some combo draws and if a flush hits on the river, i might not get paid.

      Preflop: You don't have too much info on his preflop tendencies but in BU vs BB you should definitely 4bet JJ as your default play. It's strong enough to play for stacks, but not that great for playing postflop with 3 overcards in the deck.

      Flop: Standard call

      Turn: Well it's between raising or calling right? I think both are fine, I really think that villain should never fold AX here if he is betting it for value. Folding AX would simply be terrible when your Turn shoving range should actually be heavily weighted towards flush draws.

      Calling is fine if you think villain will 3 barrel a ton anyway on all cards. vs super aggro guys who will barrel hearts with their spades, and barrel spades with their hearts, or just barrel blanks anyway, I prefer calling.

      Given the info you provided I don't think he is that aggressive but i also don't expect him to bet/fold AQ/AK so I would just ship the Turn.
