      i would b/f turn. i dont see a hand which will shove here and i will be ahead. this is if we consider villain a decent player.

      guess he had set or jq

      QJ looks like a very likely hand but so is a flush draw or even KQ, trying to get a straight. it would depend a lot on how this player has been playing up to now and what is your style. are you prepared to look for a better spot?

      generally vs 1 player i would call it too as it is +ev with AA vs 1 villain. but someone could correct me on that? maybe i will learn something here too!

      I played a similar hand against a player with similar stats. I folded only to find out later he was a donk. But I would still fold without specific reads that he is able to make this play with FD or TP.

      Hello,

      Villain is unknown, so I think I would just Bet/Fold on turn, I don't see myself behind ahead there very often to make the Call profitable.

      Best regards,
