      Preflop: Good
      Flop: Not too sure, he is quite tight (13 vipip) and looks like he's hit a set, or is semi-bluffing a draw.
      Turn: I don't mind a fold here. He's quite a tight player and showing lots of agression, he is telling a good story that he has trips.

      This. 13/12 in that spot screams "setmining" especially when makes a big raise, it's not that easy for him to have a straight draw and he might not even semi-bluff with that. He'll show you QQ+ too sometimes.

      It's very exploitable to fold AJ there so we need to keep an eye open to see if it seems like this guy is flopping set too often, but in a vacuum I don't mind just folding that flop against that committing raise. If you don't want to fold because you put some Jx (doubt it) or draws (few of them but maybe) in his range, you're better off 3-bet jamming on him and making sure all the money goes in now that he's pretty much committed.


      Hope it helps.
