      Final Pot: $1,98


      The question is about the flop call. I do it (call) often against the reraise on the flop and then check fold on a big turn bet. Is it more profitable to just shove the flop on the reraise (relatively dry board)? I guess it's too cautious to fold on the flop reraise... Blockbet the turn? What can i beat here besides AJ?

      Looks like a set (on the flop) to me.

      On this particular board it's hard to tell. TPTK/FD are all possible. It totally depends on the read then. If you have seen him raising TPTK/Qx on flop like this before then you can get it in. If you have seen him calling with these hands then you can fold.

      You need reads. On which basis you think opponent is agressive? It sounds like a read.

      On unk I play it like you.

      If I would know that opponent is aggro spewy I like to c/shove turn.
      3bet flop would kick out bluffs.

      depends how often have you seen him raising with draws
      I would usually not give credit to villains so I think either 3-betting flop and getting all-in is fine with aces or c/rai
      But if you think he mostly has there two pair+ then your play is fine
