      35/3/63 he posted his blind note he called 3bet from behind with A3s

      Even he was loose, should I c/f turn because there were decent Ax?

      If we think he has still worse Qx, pairs, pp in his range on the turn prob we should bet (not huge) ourselves or check fold.

      The thing is that I don't expect this player to bet worse enough times.

      I think if we are going to bet the turn I'd be something small like $4 and give up river.
      I think this shoves might make him fold a lot of worse hands and this will result in us getting called mostly by better hands.
