      Hi.

      I think u shuld check turn and call a blank river. We are probably behind his value range of AK and AA TT but we can bluffcarch river vs busted straight and flush draws.

      I dont think betting turn is a huge mistake and it might even be the better play if u think hos pf range is really wide and contains many more weaker ax hands.

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      I do agree for postflop with mbml.
      If we think villain's range is wide enough (which might be the case since this is NL2) I like playing bet/bet.

      Best,
