      ...and now????

      Villain stats: 24/9/1.5/123

      Table being quite passive, so I'm playing a bit more aggresive than usual and AJo still in a range I'm successfully stealing in this kind of table. Most of situations I easily lay down my cards to any usual 3bet, but this was just too cheap. Plus after this miniraise I put my opp on JJ+ maybe also AK.

      After a flop - seeing one more Jack and one more Ace on flop, I excluded JJ and AA from opp hands, also had in mind, that AKh is the only one hand that can beat me there (as I've said no AA, JJ, and of course no 33 - that I was counting in that moment), KK, QQ, and maybe AK is most likely, and they can pay to me. One advice I got analyzing this hand - I should have push this flop, because I don't wanna see any heart on board. Should I? Suggestions on flop play are welcome :) Or should I called the flop and shove any no heart turn/gave up on heart?

      And as played - after the most scary turn card comes - what to do now? Any bet makes me pot commited, I think, and I have WA/WB there, only get called by flush. Any check would face a bet from villain (I'm afraid), and should I give up my hand, including his possible bluff for flush? Check/fold?

      There is a rule that you can go allin on the flop in a reraised pot (preflop).
      But youre raise on the flop is perfect.

      He calls and on the turn you get a very difficult situation. I think I should check/fold here.

      Althought the 3bet is small, AJ is not a hand you want to get involved with in a three bet pot.

      On the flop, I think you played it fine.

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 25.360% 24.97% 00.39% 7696926 119477.00 { AcJs }
      Hand 1: 74.640% 74.25% 00.39% 22885592 119477.00 { JJ+ }

      That seems just about the right to call 0,60 into 2,5$ pot - I need 24% to call :)

      Plus, since I suspect him being on monster, I think, implied odds are mine.

      C/f here is best imo.
      If villain is calling your c/r then he probably has Ak, AQ with flushdraw, some cases also sets.
      If he doesn't have here flush then he´d check behind and hopefylly you check it down also on the river.

      yeah, I check fold the turn as well.

      I know you have the odds to call, but you don't have nice implied odds since if you hit big and he actually has a monster (AA, KK), he either has an underpair or a set... and you would end up losing a big pot more often than win a big against an overplayed AK...
