Hi, villain is unknown.

I didn't c-bet the flop since it was so dry and I don't see many worst hands calling or better folding.

Should I just check fold the turn ?

Hey boss,

I think 3-betting preflop is absolutely fine with AJs, although I like calling pre against an unknown even though we're in the SB. Problem with medium strength broadways is always the same as we are unsure of what range villain will continue with in a bloated pot when we flop top pair.

OTF I would always bet out against an unknown as you can not only get calls from worse but you also never know how his betting range truly looks like once you check. Continuing on the later streets as played will be tough from here without infos/reads.

OTT I would make a decision as to whether I'm folding or going with it (jamming). Villain can now actually have picked up some draws with bluffs from his flop betting range and also get more sticky with a worse ace while maybe checking back river with weaker ones or bluffs/busted draws. Not too happy about his big turn bet though, on paper our hand looks a little too weak here which actually is an argument for folding.
