      Is this kind of slowplay with AA profitable in the long run? (basically I wanted him to go aggro himself on every street with whatever he has)

      BTN: (11hands) VPIP 56 , PFR , 44 , WTSD 100 , Flop Agg 50 , Turn Agg 75 , River Agg 0

      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $25.25 (101 bb)
      SB: $179.16 (716.6 bb)
      Hero (BB): $55.30 (221.2 bb)
      UTG: $108.94 (435.8 bb)
      MP: $70.15 (280.6 bb)
      CO: $24.99 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A A
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.75, SB folds, Hero raises to $2, BTN calls $1.25

      Flop: ($4.10) Q 9 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.25, Hero calls $2.25

      Turn: ($8.60) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $6.75, Hero calls $6.75

      River: ($22.10) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $14.25, BTN calls $14.25 and is all-in

      Results:
      $50.60 pot ($2 rake)
      Final Board: Q 9 2 3 7
      BTN showed T Q and won $48.60 ($23.35 net)
      Hero showed A A and lost (-$25.25 net)

      Hi,

      Up until turn it's fine. Including checking turn is fine but when his river aggression is so low, I prefer check/shoving the turn instead of donking river. You get same value but avoid you opponent ever playing river correctly. He will never fold any half decent made hand or draw but will fold on river when he misses the draws.

      Do you mean I am not giving him chance to bluff the River?
      But what if I just Check and he decides to Check behind for safety with TPTK on a scary board like this? Am I not losing value?

      ^ That's what I mean.

      If you just check/call turn and lead river he still folds all missed draws and only calls decent made hands while if you check/shove turn he is close to commited with draws and any decent hand.

      I can try and write streets with capital letters, should be easier to read, especially when I make slightly longer posts. :)
