      Hi,


      Hard to say since we don't know how light he's calling the 3-bets, we can't know how effective our bluff raise on the flop will be. More often than not people donk random pocket pairs for information there and they usually don't go away for a small raise, so if i raise i'd make it a little bigger and shove any overcard turn. Calling is fine too, you won't always get lead into on the turn, so you get to be ahead if he's doing that with stuff like AQ and see 2 cards where you can improve to top pairs/straights/good bluffing opportunities.

      As played he probably should never open jam that A turn with less than top pair, so getting almost 2:1 we likely just have to hope he has AQ instead of weirdly played sets or that he's retarded somehow and jammed whatever pair he had "to prevent you from bluffing the A" (I know it doesn't make any sense, you'll still see plays that look a lot like that..).


      Hope it helps.
