      Wasn't sure wether to raise or not, figured if i raise and get re-raised then it's a waste of a hand, after i hit the ace it's possible i'm ahead so that's an easy call on the turn, but after he leads so strong on the river (and has stats of 21/14) i put him on AK or a bluff, so should i be folding for this reason or perhaps calling?

      Thanks guyz :f_love:

      I am just reraising, trying to get AI with nut fd and a gs and especially when I hit my pair on turn.

      I also prefer raising on the flop and playing for stacks especially when you don´t go to showdown after hitting your Ax on the turn
      as played: I think both call or fold are fine. If you don´t expect villain to 3-barrel too much I think you can also fold, since he isn´t really gonna valuebet there QQ or smt
