      mostly unknown but involved in most hands and very passive.

      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $61.92 (619.2 bb)
      SB: $20.91 (209.1 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $19.41 (194.1 bb)
      MP: $13.16 (131.6 bb)
      CO: $15.24 (152.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A A
      Hero raises to $0.30, MP folds, CO calls $0.30, BTN raises to $0.70, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2.70, CO folds, BTN calls $2

      Flop: ($5.85) 7 J Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($5.85) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.20, BTN calls $2.20

      River: ($10.25) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      For some reason I couldn't fire the flop turn and river.. I don't know why. I think the big stack spooked me. Maybe I thought he had nothing and didn't want to scare him away, or didn't want to overplay AA, but it's a 3bet pot and I should be all in by the turn IMO.

      Your preflop play is good.

      This board is quite bad here, but I think we should definitely cbet here. There are KK and AQ that we can take value from here.

      As played on the flop, I would bet both turn and river here. I like your sizing on the turn here - probably we could bet a little bit more, but this is fine as well.
      On the river I'd bet around $4.5.
