Deep 5/10 game at the Wynn in Vegas. Rec player with $3500 stack raises to $60 I'm next to act with AQo. This rec player doesn't raise big with ak type hands so his range is TT+. Bb also calls and we're 3way.
Flop: KJ7 rainbow
Bb checks, villain checks, I bet $180, bb mucks, villain calls. I had a live tell that he wasn't very pained when he called, almost like a happy call. If he had QQ or TT he would probably fold, so immediately I smelled something fishy.
Turn: T completing rainbow. Boom. Villain checks again and now I fire $480, villain immediately xr to $1200.
So we have 2 options: ship it here knowing this villain is never folding his top or middle set, or wait till the river to make sure board doesn't pair. It's a pretty big pot for me, $7000, so I was deliberating and decided to ship since ace or nine or river might scare him. Although I'm still pretty sure that he will pay off some bet. If board pairs I can easily muck. Which is better play?
