      We should the pre call mix up with some 3bets - for value.

      As played, its best play to call it down. Maybe we could consider to raise OTR? Not sure...QJ and some sets - thats what i put villain on. Since we block an ace i dont see many Ax combos, sometimes AQ. I mean we should just call. Only QJ would call us.

      As played is perfectly fine in my opinion. Folding is to nitty here. Would consider raising but there arent many worse hand combos that will call us. So i think a call is the best option here. If he's got a set or some runner runner, its a cooler.

      70% call and 30% raise river. You did underep your hand, so you can raise fold i guess.

      But guys, would he 3 barrel here with anything worst? I can think only of AK and QJ- 14 combos. But there is AQ, KT, 77,55, JJ, QQ that beat us - 34 combos...

      What about KK?

      I never see a fold here. Our hand has to much equity and a fold is too weak. Might be right, a raise is been called probably not often enough by worse hands.

      He would never bet a KK on the river.

      AJ may be the bottom to call here on river...

      He does have plenty weaker hands in his range. He opens from SB so his range should be wider than usual. This means he has all the 2 pair combos that we beat including 57/A5/A7 etc. He also has some turn semi bluffs - AT/AK/9T

      Also, the board is getting scarier for a single J and he might be trying to bluff you out of a hand like KJ/JT/middle pocket pairs, etc. If i am villian i would bet 100% of my turn range to this river including all the bluffs. If AJ is not a call here this means you are folding 100% of your flop calling range.

      Think of it, what hands do you reach river with which are calling this bet ? AJ/QJ and perhaps AQ if you float light are the only ones i think that can reach the river without raising at any other street and be able to call this river bet.
