      did I played worst than him ? he showed weakness in flop but so did I .
      he 3x my raise , made me wonder if he has AK,AQ, but he maybe would bet on flop .
      so some un hopeless gutshot or something. but I feel bad for my play here . .

      If he's an aggressive player you should check the turn to him again. When he checks back the flop he often has A-high or nothing since he looks fishy, he'll often try to represent the A whether he has it or not and it lets you see a showdown cheaper with a hand that isn't that strong, you only beat a few Ax hands, the ones he's less likely to open raise from UTG tho it's still possible he's raising any Ax since he's bad.

      If he's passive you're indeed better off leading the turn into him because he could be checking down hands as strong as Tx/8x that will pay off bets on turn and maybe river, but when such a player raises your donkbet he'll have you smoked, so as sad as it looks it's a bet/fold especially out of position.

      Hope it helps.
