I don't think this was very well thought through. I 4bet to fold out draws but I guess he only calls with better, and vs QJ Im pretty much drawing dead. Better to call him down and fold to third river barrel?

I think it's too ambitious 3betting this flop. It smashes his calling range on the button and we are likely a dog against his range.

I would just call his flop raise and reevaluate OTT.

Once the A comes I would also just call and probably call most rivers.

Hi pockettones,

I prefer calling here too. The flop hits their range well and although we have AA its just one pair. We are beat against Sets, 2Pairs, and straights. It's also unlikely that villain has AK because they did not 3bet us preflop. The turn gives us trips which now beats his TT, 99 and two pair hands but only remain behind QJ in which case I think we have to go with it. We beat most of their range and can still draw to the nuts if they happen to have QJ.
