      SB ($51.05)
      BB ($74.55)
      UTG ($56.05)

      MP ($43.70)

      Preflop: Gerv is Button with A, A
      UTG calls $0.50, 1 fold, Gerv bets $2.25, 2 folds, UTG calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.25) 8, 6, J (2 players)
      UTG checks, Gerv bets $3.50, UTG calls $3.50

      Turn: ($12.25) 3 (2 players)
      UTG bets $9, Gerv raises $22, UTG calls $13

      River: ($56.25) T (2 players)
      UTG checks, Gerv checks

      Is calling the Turn better in terms of value veruss Range? If I raise Turn I am going with my hand but then I will be facing a relatively stronger range right?

      So call turn & call River when he bets again or do you play it like this?

      villain is very aggressive considering his VPIP and PFR.
      So I'd just call on turn so that he "bluffs" again on river.

      On that dry board I call again on river.
      I expect him to have QJ type of hand there.

      Your raise has the advantage to take a free showdown.
      But if he 3-bets on turn, or donks again on river after your raise then I expect that you are beat (JT).

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,

      if you want to raise turn you should go with your hand, against that loose player it is reasonable line, but then you should shove river for value
