      I was faced with very difficult situation on turn.

      I become a little bit experienced over time but still i think i have very much to learn.

      Is there a possibility to act here differently?


      Is there a possibility that his shove is pure bluff?

      it is never pure bluff, but h can easily shove turn with Qx hand or JT, KJ or smt like that
      Once you bet turn, imo you can´t fold to shove

      But u really think that this kind of player is capable of shoving that with Qx hand or JT, KJ as u said.


      He seems to be good player.

      Interesting spot. But yeah, I guess we really can't fold this turn after we bet, the pot is far too big.

      What can we put him on though, for calling a 3bet pre flop? I guess TT, JJ, QQ, AK, AQ are possibilities. I see him mostly shoving JJ, slow played QQ, and AK :diamond: there.


      @Kaitz: would you play the turn differently, or do you like just bet/calling?

      Basically i really dont see other option than bet here and shove river.

      But that shove very surprised me and as we were a little bit deep i decided to fold since i really didnt see an option that he has worse hand.

      Maybe he was slowplaying AA also. I see that often.

      Depends what is hero image. I think his range can be as wide as: KQ+; 55-JJ, Aj+ Mostly he should get all-in preflop with QQ+/AK
      Turn is not the safest card in the deck. I would b/c likely 50% and check back 50% of times. But again it depends what is my image. If he sees me 35/30 with 3-bet on the Bu close to 15%-20% it is b/c to me 100% of times, since he would c/rai with any top pair hand
