      Top pair is something that I probably have to relearn how to play. Im doning some mistakes with such cards, should I ckeck/fold on turn ? Consider small kicker check/call on river?

      Dont know if that matters but its from a zoom game

      I think pre-flop and flop is fine.

      On the turn I would probably bet around 0,28 and fold to a shove.

      Without information on our opponent it's hard to say if it's c/f or shove, but I would be most likely just to c/f since I don't think he is calling less. And if he have a weaker A he might check behind.

      Hello,

      Well, yeah, you should probably do this if you want to be a winning player.

      On a zoom game, I would definitely not open ATo from UTG. What's the intention for doing that? Hand plays quite badly postflop and we are hardly getting called by anything worse.

      What do you think about check/calling the flop here? We are hardly going to take more than two streets of value from worse here, so why don't we check and give him a chance to bluff?

      As played on the flop, I'd bet the turn and check/fold the river. I don't see him calling down some random Ax here.

      Best
