      3Bet PF (AJs is a great hand for a squeeze), bet close to the pot Flop, bet turn, bet river.


      Call the river against a non-solid villain as this looks too much as a busted FD as played.

      Shouldnt be cold calling AJ. You need to define best ace or not and preflop is the cheapest time to do it.

      Against tight villains fold, against villains loose enough to consider calling, 3bet.

      Flop - youve got to bet. If he is slowplaying that flop he is an idiot, and there are practically no cards you can get on the turn or river that will make you safe against a slowplay hand here (AA QQ AQ). If he raises you get out for a dollar.

      Turn - only hand this helped us against is AK.

      River - I cant help but think villain "slowplayed" and broke us here with AQ / AA / QQ, but since we never forced him to define his hand preflop or on the flop, we have to pay to see.
