      On turn he most likely has AQ (doubt any weaker hands will pay me anyway)
      Shove on turn, or try to take some on river?

      Hi Tombic,

      Preflop: looks fine but since we are deep I'd 3-bet slightly larger

      Postflop: Given we are deep and turn is a pretty safe card I'd just raise it there. We don't want to leave a lot of money for the river if we can avoid it.
