Tot 3bet: 10.0 on 20 samples

Turn decision... These spots are really hard for me. I usually end up calling which is probably the worst play.

OTT: Fold or jam spot?

Against a 17/15, I'm not sure I like the 3bet call with AJo I think its slightly outside my calling range against a tight opponent. His overall 3bet is 10% but we don't know how much they 3bets vs BTN steals and how much they 3bet from the SB. Try to plot 10% on pokerstove and say they would 3bet with their entire range from the SB for both value and bluff so we might see something like: TT+, AK-AT, KQ, QJs-T9s, KJs, KTs, QTs you'd see that AJo is actually on the lower part of the block. So at this point I would either 4bet to 1.8$ or just fold.

As played, I'd fold OTT to his bet sizings: he bets big OTF and our call did not deter him from betting big again OTT. Against smaller bet sizes and loser opponents we can call turn and look to get away on diamond rivers, K, Q, or even T.
