      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Turn: ($8.03) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $7.95(All-In), Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $8.03.


      Opening Villain - 15/9/Fv3bet: 50%/FvFCbet: 100%/FCbet: 50%/inf AF/20%AFq

      AK always? Anyway should be a pretty safe fold, question is, can I c/f this on such a flop?

      I guess the flop actually doesn't matter that much as AQ/AK had me crushed anyways and doubt that he's callin/betting with a worse Ax than mine there

      I think I like c/f here, OOP and not being able to call another bet makes it pretty tough to play the rest of the hand profitably.

      don´t really understand why you 3-bet Aj against 15/9 player.
      You´re turning your hand into bluff, can´t really valuebet most Ax boards can´t go to showdowns
      I think pf call can be reasonable and then leading quite a lot of baords or just fold.
      As played: there are two flushdraws so I´d likely call him down, since I can´t find any other way turn AJ into profitable once I 3-bet him pf

      I was turning it into a bluff basically - I didn't want to play it OOP vs 2 opps, most of the time I'm dominated there, so maybe he decides that he doesn't want to be in a sandwich w/ an unmade hand like AQ/AK (if he has AK then it's wishful thinking :f_biggrin: but I could make him lay down AQ/JJ etc) so decided to squeeze and that's what I was wondering ... whether I should c/f right on the flop, or c/c and hope he closed his eyes and cbet w/ QQ or smth and would check it down maybe after I c/c him there ... now that he shoves turn I can fold in peace
