      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:diamond: A:club:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 2.5 BB, fold, SB raises to 9 BB, fold, Hero raises to 19 BB, SB calls 10 BB

      Flop: (39 BB, 2 players) J:heart: 3:heart: T:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: (39 BB, 2 players) 9:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets 15 BB, SB raises to 36 BB, fold

      Preflop: I don't want to call. Villain 3bet 10% so I will use AJ for 4bet bluff.
      Flop: We hit Jx. I don't know what does his call mean. It can me QQ, KK, AA, AK, it's hard for assumption what this player thinks.
      We hit sdv so check back.
      Turn: after 2x check I decided to thin value bet. I don't have to bet much and got reraise.
      What would you say about beting on the flop too avoid situation like this?
      I don't have problem with folding but I feel a little stupid because villain doesn't represent much.

      Preflop: Hmm it's close. If villain's 3-bet range in these positions is 10%+, I'm definitely willing to call AJo vs such a 3b size.

      Flop: I would cbet here. I think TT+ usually ships preflop, so you have the virtual nuts. Even if you don't think you have the nuts here, there's a ton of value to be had from broadways like AQ AK KQ.
