Villain was 29/6 (32 hands)

I value bet turn and river & was committed to calling his shove.

Any thoughts on this hand please?

pre flop I think your play is ok, I like to mix in a flat call in my defending range with my stronger hands sometimes just to balance my range, but I think 3 betting vs a co open is fine.

I really don't believe you are ever pot committed in a cash game, Basically he is an unknown with so few hands on him, but if you knew he never has any bluffs here I think we can fold. Its really tough for him to value bet worse, but I have seen drawing hands shove turn like this when we fire big ( maybe out of frustration ) if he is a candidate for that then its an easy call. Tough spot vs an unknown for sure.

Hi carl,

No problem, looks fine. Certainly not bet/folding the turn as he can easily shove with worse aces up, AcQx, etc.
