      And now I'm thinking if I'm overplaying those tricky AQ-AT hands when I hit top pair, or not. Overall I have profit from them, but almost every situation when I hit with those hands - I have a difficult decision and basically have to gamble. I basically never know if my opponent shows aggression or calling with better hand or worse. Of course my decision should be based on the stats and the type of opponent, but I find the majority of them being so-so, and decisions become very marginal.

      Hello Bliausmas,

      I guess I am giving it up on river, what hands we beat there? While as well he seems rather not 3barreling a lot, I mean unless he has a hand. Therefore I'd put him on some hand which often times even beats us there and make the fold. And as well we are against UTG range, which often times is stronger.

      Best regards.

      Yeah, we be only AT-A9, but I doubt he would 3barrel with these and it would be too luxurious to expect for him to have exactly that hand. It's certainly good to ask yourself "what do I beat here?" sometimes :)
