      I think your up against an ace way too often here to reraise his 3B. After he raised your turn raise I'd give up with this board. Especially since he limp called, he probably has some low PP or some broadway combination which hit him pretty good on the flop and turn.

      Hi,


      I'd probably just call the turn since it made a bunch of two pairs and straights, if he has a Q we'll win at showdown, if he has better than that we don't risk getting blown of our gutshot.

      As played I don't really think he plays a lone Ax like that, small donkbets followed by a 3bet are usually way stronger than that. Either way you're beat quite often so there is no real reason to get stubborn here unless you're positive he's just going nuts with some KQ hand that turned a gutshot or something.


      Hope it helps.
