      Hello YourDoom,

      More often I'd bet myself on turn since such passive opponent could easily even check behind his weak hands and lets just get value from them, Bet/Bet/Bet. Otherwise seems to be fine, although sometimes overplayed, depending on the opponent.

      Best regards.

      I think he overplayed AQo. Since he will have at least one player behind him (many times even both of them) and playing AQ oop is very -ev I think. I'm inclined to just calling preflop. If you miss it's easy c/f.
      On flop I'm check-raising against one opponent. And if both of them called I just donk bet 2/3 into them.

      Maybe I just lost so many hands with AQ that I play it so passively :)

      yaxkukmian: still many players will fold to squeeze and its +5.4bbs in this case, also if I get 1 call 2/3 pot c-bet works more then 50% of time.

      BU will hardly call squeeze - its 1/5 of his stack. (and he most likely have PP)
