      Dont like that check/call in flop and turn becouse you are OOP and act behind opponent can get a max value from your hand.

      Nice hand.

      Yeah just cbet the flop. You don't want the CO and BU to check behind as well and give anyone a chance to catch you up, and also you miss some value from weaker Aces.

      Also I think playing it c/c and c/r on flop and river gives away your strength a little bit, and you will often fold out hands that would have just called you down had you lead out on all the streets. To be honest smarter opponents will manage to fold their AJ here.

      Hello NthnPrsnal,

      Preflop: 4xBB standard raise. :)
      Postflop: Why do you Check it on flop? Rather just CBet and then reevaluate further actions and most likely going broke on turn. But ye, once again don't like your play at all. :) Why can't you just Bet/Bet/Shove and at least protect your hand and at the same time find out where you stand.

      Best Regards.
