      PF: Raise for value

      Flop: I bet for value vs worse PPs, any 6x, 78 straight draw, Ax, and broadway flush draws like AT, AJ, JT. I have 2 Queens so it's less likely he has a Q.

      Turn: I am abit lost here. J is not really a good card as he can turn a Gutshot or he can pair up giving him more equity and makes it hard for me to play OOP. I don't want to give up the initiative here though and get pushed out of the pot. I feel that there's still value in betting vs his draws and his Ax which floated on the flop.

      If he has a smaller PP 77-TT with a Club in his hand, then I'm not sure if it's right to bet though because he will likely fold.

      If he calls, I'm gonna play x/c on River if the odds permit. He might have a King. But AK probably 3-bets PF, KJ probably raises on Turn, and I hold 2 Qs to KQ. So he probably has more draws than a King.

      There's no value in betting vs Ax.

      I think we are turning our hand into a bluff, which will never work. If you have pocket deuces, do you still bet for value against draws on AdTd7c board? To bet for protection, you first need a good hand to protect.

      On the river we don't know enough about the opponent, to assume that he bluffs with busted draws and always raises the turn with 2P. He also has 12 KT and 6 KQ.

      Turn bet serves no purpose as th334 pointed out. So u check and decide on whether to cc or cf. I think u canprobably cc one street
