      Hi,


      I'd check back the turn. A 16/13 player coldcalled a 3-bet from the BB and bet out 3-way for 2/3 pot on A42 2t, what do you think the chances of him not having AJ beat are? It's possible he has a worse flushdraw but frankly I'm not even sure he'd bet it on the flop and if he does he doesn't need to bet 2/3 pot with it. I think you'll see AQ/AK somewhat often and it's not worth the valuebet on the turn.

      As played when he makes that small check/minraise you're smoked like always, I'd say AQ the vast majority of the time. But you get direct odds to draw to your nut flush with another few bucks behind so whatever, calling is fine. And the odds we get on the river don't really matter, we knew we were behind on the turn already.

      The only way I can see that play out differently after his turn raise is if you can put him on some sort of bluff on the turn and I just don't think it's likely at all considering preflop/flop play.


      Hope it helps.
