      he can sometimes have there KK/AA, maybe even AQ, but since you have boat in 3-bet pot against unknown opponent I´d just c/rai turn or shove turn myself.
      You shouldn´t fold your hand at that point, since he can take that line maybe with AK or TT and lower pp-s.

      I've been thinking about this hand. I had the brake on, as I was worried about AA, KK, and AQ, but at the same time, there was no way I was folding. I should, as you say, shove the turn, as any of the above hands will put me all in anyway, and I will call, but I should be making worse hands like AK and smaller pps put their chips in the middle too. This way I can avoid a negative freeroll.

      Thanks for the advice.
