      I wonder whether my turn call was justified and/or if there's a better postflop line to take?

      P.S.: I apologize for posting so many hands, but I'm trying learn BSS beside SSS and I have many questions, mainly about postflop, cause I'm not used to it.

      And thanks to everyone for your replies/comments. :)

      Bet/fold flop is better than calling turn. The Ace is in your range so you can try to represent it and you will win the hand most of the time. You still want to protect against fd if you are ahead. If you get called you can check behind turn and fold/call river depending on what comes on the board / bet size .

      Once checked flop, calling turn is fine.
