      calling on the turn sux, because if I miss the river I have no idea where I stand and he could try to bluff me with an allin pot bet, but can I shove the turn here? I was discussing this hand with a friend and he said that such a player often pots when he gets scared of the board (as in holding TT-QQ here), while he bets small/checks if he has monster.

      On that turn I have 20% equity against AK/set, 34-ish against A3/A2/AQ/AJ and i'm dominating pretty much all FD/SD and lower Aces

      Jamming the turn is usually the worst option unless you can put him on some worse made hand / flushdraw somehow. It turns your pair of Aces into a semi-bluff when it's likely it's the best hand if villain is aggressive enough to be potting stuff like QQ there. If you're worried he's capable of bluff-shoving the river, then call him down instead of making him fold his weak hands / airballs by jamming the turn :p

      Hope it helps.
