      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      Villain: 65/15/1.5/WTSD 27/22 hands

      Flop: standard

      Turn: I have to 2nd barrel here if i cbet flop.

      Question: What to do after he raises? Could he be bluffing? Or is it much more likely that that he has some kind of Ax hand which those players like to play. Agree?


      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $24.94
      BB:
      $37.64
      CO(Hero):
      $49.91
      BU:
      $56.15


      Preflop: Hero is CO with J, T.
      Hero raises to $0.85, BU folds, SB calls $0.75, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.95) A, A, Q (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.00, SB calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.95) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.50, SB raises to $5.00, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $6.45.

      Flop bet a bit higher.

      I am not a fan of half-size pot bets, they look weak even if the board is like that. I would bet 1.2$ to make my bet seem stronger.

      Turn you should not bet again. Villain does not float OOP with weaker hands than Q. Just check behind and hope for a K so you have some showdown value.

      As played yeah fold.

      I´d also prefer check on the turn, once he calls flop, he won´t really fold to your turn barrel.
      And he isn´t bluffing turn, I think he holds Ax a lot of times
