      Hey Dracsharp,

      In order to call this hand preflop your opponent needs to be 3betting somewhat light which he possibly is.

      Flop call is fine. You should float a lot of flops in this spot.

      I'd think about betting the turn for protection. Maybe occasionally fold out lower pockets, and occasionally get called by flush-draws/straight draws.

      River, I don't like your bet, all the hands that beat you are likely calling. I would show down your AQ high.

      We have 4 lines either we bet both streets which could be an overplay here imo, or we check it down, or try to sneak in a bet somewhere either turn or river, river is more reliable but turn is stronger. If we aim to fold his pockets we really should go for turn, and pass to river if we want them to do a light call.

      So only b/f turn or checkdown ?

      Checking down is fine. I think bet/fold turn is better because it has the additional benefit of sometimes folding out pocketpairs, sometimes getting called by worse, and the rest of the time folding out your opponents equity.
