      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, K.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 3 folds, BB raises to $0.28, Hero calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.57) A, A, T (2 players)
      BB bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($1.37) K (2 players)
      BB bets $0.35, Hero calls $0.35.

      River: ($2.07) K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.97, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.07.

      Should I just shove the turn? Expected him to fold, so I just flatted. Villain is a TAG.

      Raise flop and try to get it in. He will call you off with any Ax.

      Preflop: I think flatting the 3b is fine given starting positions

      Flop: I Don't think we need to raise at any point in time. Just call down and bet when checked to.

      River: What range of hands are you targeting now? You chop with any AX anyway so you can't value bet vs that. So either we get hero-called by Q high (AAKKQ) or we get a call from KX. Bet smaller so that he can call you with such hands, like 33% pot or something similar

      imo this spot is really villain dependant, saying that villain is a TAG isn't much.
      it's one of these spots where either he has it (Ax) or he doesn't (and most often he doesn't)... and if he doesn't have it then it's about how he is going to play hands weaker than Ax.

      how active is he? do you think he can 3bet hands like AQ/AJ or something like A7s in this spot?
      do you think he will fold KK to a flop raise?

      all in all, whatever you do other than folding should be fine.
      against a standardish nl2 reg 3betting range (tight), imo raising flop or not is mostly about what you think he will do with KK-QQ.
