      I am still unsure how to play overpairs. Over 5000 hands, AA is my biggest loser.

      First hand I have no reads on villain.
      Second hand villain is TAG.

      Hand 1:

      Well played IMO. He could be raising you on the flop with a lof of hands, the board is drawy and you have to protect.

      Hand 2:

      Well played too I think.

      I'd usually fold to a check/raise on the flop as it usually means set IMO. But given that villain is TAG and raised PF. On that board I'd say he's got an overpair or the FD with two overcards.

      In a 3bet pot dont fold AA.

      He can do this with TT,JJ,QQ,KK,AKs +bluff
