      By watching TwiceT's HU video I got a much better idea of what "bet for value" is. I used to think it was betting to get more money from worse A(not likely this case) but it actually includes all FD/SD hands =)

      a valuebet is simply when you bet and get called by a hand with lower equity. definitely bet this turn, you are getting called by:

      flush draws
      straight draws
      any ten (probably call you twice bvb)
      some 9s
      pocket pairs below 8 will call one street, pocket kings, queens, jacks may call you down. Not likely that he didn't 3bet these preflop but you never know.

      and you're even getting called by worse aces often enough to compensate for when you're called by better aces.

      But think about this:
      A9 makes 2pair on the flop and will raise flop to protect against draws.
      AT... same thing.
      AJ will 3bet you about 25% of the time preflop.
      AQ will 3bet you often.
      AK will always 3bet.

      So you don't have many better aces to worry about. All in all, bet turn for value! :D
