      Why try to float instead of immediately raising that pot on flop ?
      Now it looks more like a "I didn't hit my flush draw yet" bet on the turn, which is easier to call or reraise of course ... I guess that's not what you were going for given your reaction (trying to float).

      Btw, TPTK is not a hand to float with, it's a hand to go extract value from. Still raise the flop for protection then.

      Tight is right fullring tables
      If you´re get 3-bet, then fold AJ
      It´s bad hand. 2/3 times you don´t hit anything.
      And if you hit A or J, you might be dominated.
      I like your flop play. If you´re ahead then you don´t have to protect, because he probably has 2 or 3 outs.
      I like your also your turn bet to taking down the pot+ you maybe get called by worse hands.

      Ty for pointing it out.
      I´d probably still rather fold more than call ip the reasons I gave before:)
      You shouldn´t really get stacked with Aj if you hit A or J and since you shouldn´t get stacked then no point calling pf.
