      Hey Martisula,

      I agree with your comments regarding AJo. While a perfectly decent hand to flat vs 3bet IP vs wide 3better, OOP probably better to turn it into a bluff and have something like AQ as bottom of flatting range.

      Betting once on turn is likely ok. On this particular type of texture you can even get called by worse, some player will happily draw to a boat with KJ. When you get called I'd just give up river. If villain has a boat he is never folding. No guarantee he folds an Ace. The rest of his hands you beat anyway.
