      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      SB: $50 (100 bb)
      BB: $44.01 (88 bb)
      MP: $21.85 (43.7 bb)
      CO: $51.25 (102.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J A
      MP folds, CO raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $4.50, SB folds, BB calls $4, CO calls $3

      Flop: ($13.75) 6 2 Q (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($13.75) A (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero bets $7, BB raises to $20.75, 2 folds

      Anon table.

      CO is a TAG on small sample.
      BB played 54/9 after 30 hands.

      Preflop I should have just called, to make sure BB will come along. But he came along anyway...
      Turn? All I beat is a pure bluff...

      Preflop: Don't think 3betting a TAG with AJs is gonna be optimal. You don't get value too often from the TAG with worse. He probably folds AT/KJ type of hands OOP. Or he may 4bet you as a bluff.

      There is also a weak BB player so I prefer to call and hope it gets mutliway with BB playing in the hand.

      Flop: Their preflop ranges do contain some QX hands so I'm not stabbing.

      Turn: Do you think you are getting 2 streets of value with AJ? Maybe vs the fish. So I think betting Turn is fine with the intention of half potting most blank rivers.

      I think when we get check raised here, he should probably be strong fairly often so folding is fine.
