      Hero mucked A J and lost (-$16 net)

      Vilain is a fish 71/39 82 hand.
      On the flop, I decide to pot control and not isolate myself vs AQ AK.
      On the turn, I just bet strong for value. On the river, I can't see the fish value less than two pair he can have often.

      You played this way too weakly. I think you should bet the Flop right away and consider 2 or 3 barreling, based on the runout. For example, if lower cards or pairing cards or K/Q came on the Turn, I would continue barreling Turn and probably River. This guy has every off-suit Ace preflop.

      I think we would just beat way too many worse kickers. As played, if you check the River you should c/c. We beat 78 and A9 A7 A2-A4, busted draws, 43s.
