      I had this situation twice tonight:

      I raised before the flop but then didn't hit anything but was first in against 1 opponent so raised 2/3 pot as bluff which was called.

      The turn card comes up empty for me too so what should I do - bet again to continue the bluff or give up the hand?

      I believe probably give up the hand but I tried both tonight and thought I'd get some clarification as to which is correct.

      First hand I just give up

      The second hand with the AQs, if a Q,K,A falls off the Turn, I instant shove otherwise just give it up

      It is no shame to give it up since you are invest the money correctly pre and postflop ;)
      If you decide to go all-in with Ace high, you are gambling and hoping that Villain will fold but those chances are slim

      Best regards,
