      Hello acceleration123,

      For the reason that he might as well play this way his TP type of hands, I think going broke on turn should be fine, and rather ship it on turn than Call if you planning to invest money into the pot anyways. Against very passive opponents I'd sometimes even consider folding on turn for the given reason that he is betting very weak on flop to induce bluff-raise and then decides to bet into us on turn pretty strong could mean that he has a very strong hand, which is going broke. But for the given reason that we don't have any info on him and it's NL2, I don't mind going broke there.

      Best regards.

      Definitely worth to take a note on him how he did play his Aces.

      You are welcome! And definitely they are worth just for the reason you start getting used to it and it will be a lot easier for you to make notes on higher limits since you already have started taking them. Making some short-keys for notes and etc.
