      i was trying to play it tricky and not 4bet . when he checked the turn i put it him on Ajs + ... do you think i should have checked behind in order to let him hit something or induce another bet from him on the river ?

      BU against SB I would suggest 4-bet. Sb often sees that a steel and would push with AK, JJ+. And if he folds that´s also nice, at least he won´t 3-bet when you have 87s:)

      Since you played tricky I would also called flop and shove turn. Don´t check behind you want to build big pot with your aces.

      of course i want to build a big pot ... no queation here ... but i want to extract the most value out of it and if my read was corect beting the turn will make him fold 90%

      get it in pre-flop with AA if you can. Here you're letting him draw out cheaply, and it would be hard to put him on a hand, so you'll probably end up losing more big pots than you'd win. I would only play AA "tricky" against someone I can read very well (live vs regulars for ex.), but even then I do it rarely. Against an unknown, I push pre-flop if I can

      4bet to 5.7 and check all flops.

      As played u might check the turn behind cuz his hand looks like AK AQ AJ KQ. All hands that are drawing dead to you. Also THe board is superdry.

      You want to get the money in even if he has like AK or AQ and you wont get that postflop against most players. There is certainly places to play tricky and NL20 is not one of them. Letting him draw out is certainly not a big problem here cause most of the time he will need runner runner cause this is hardly ever an pair knowing the river action and if it is a pair you are way ahead. The only way you are behind is if he's loose and 3-bets 1010. So raise pre and shove post flop.

      I 4-bet here as many people tend to overplay small pockets in BU vs SB situations and you want to play for stacks...
