      Guess not that spectaculair but still have some questions...
      I was trying to represent QQ+, and made the bet bit small on turn since with a 3-bet flush draws are bit less likely and like this I try to represent a really strong hand who is building a suitable pot on the river to shove all-in, thought an advantage of this is that its a pretty cheap bluff on turn in our case.

      this was my second 3-bet and just played 11 hands and 1st 3bet really looked like a sqeeze play so thought was also possible he was calling me light with medium pair and stuff like that which he calls on flop to hope to go to showdown with.

      am I just lucky that he folds in this case ? or was it well played? I often have difficulties with AK OOP when I dont hit.

      He could possibly be calling wide on the flop and we improved on the turn to a gutshot with 2 overs so we definitely can 2 barrel to fold out some low pairs which weakened on the J turn and we could hit many cards on the river which we can then value bet.

      Turn bet size is a little too small though, I'll make it a normal half pot size bet, a smaller bet size encourages weaker hands like small pairs to call and see a river which is not what we want.

      This guy seems pretty aggressive, what about c\c line from the flop?

      He's in position so he can call pretty wide I think. Broadways, connectors, everything he can bet after we check but raise or fold if we bet imho.

      Yeah, being OOP makes the situation more difficult so I'm not sure it's the best play, but I think we can definitely consider it :)

      P.S. No problems, like to participate in a good discussion ;)

      I'm not sure if he bets a wide range if we check to him and I don't think we should assume that of him given the limitedssample we have. Check calling does not give us the option to fold out stronger hands like pairs and we can only win at showdown. I prefer taking such a line against someone I know has a very wide range and willing to bet bluffs multiple streets blindly, I'm not sure if this guy is like that and I would want to avoid a guessing game so Iprefer betting mmyself on flop.
