      Hi.

      The Turn is one of the worst cards in the deck. Given starting positions, I should think that villain shouldn't have KTs or X:cX too often but he should probably have most combos of AQ. So I think it's fine to 3-barrel for value here. I would just jam the River though - I don't think there's room to bet/fold here with so little money left behind.

      Thanks.
