      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:spade: , 7:spade:
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.15, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.45, CO calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($0.92) A:diamond: , 6:club: , 5:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.58, CO calls $0.58.

      Turn: ($2.08) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.6, Hero calls $0.60.

      River: ($3.28) 8:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Final Pot: $3.28

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows a pair of aces (Ah Ks)
      Hero shows (As 7s)

      CO wins with a pair of aces (Ah Ks)

      Preflop: Villain has decent TAG stats 15/14/2.0, steals a lot (open raise late 36%), and folds steals 50% to raise. Ok to play back at him with my suited ace?

      Flop: cbet

      Turn: tricky. I don't feel I can 2nd barrel with TPNK, given that the guy has shown strength calling a preflop raise and one further bet. But when I check, it makes it look like I missed the flop and my cbet was a bluff, so my weakness makes it very likely he will bet, even without an A. Hence for the given odds I called his small bet here.

      Hello member001,

      Preflop: 3betting is totally fine here, although while he really does not fold to that many 3bets then I do sometimes just Call and play postflop against him in smaller pots.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to add, I would likely play the same way. Definitely take a note that he played TPTK this way and rather passively.

      Best regards.
