[NL2-NL10] NL4 6max AQo too passive?

      My instinct is that I played this hand too passively from the turn onwards and let TAG villian push me out of the pot. In hindsight a bet/fold line may have been more optimal on turn, but then what do I bet on the river? How can I control the pot size OOP with this top pair hand?

      Hey Alan,

      Just bet/bet/bet for value with your TP. AK 3bet preflop, sets and 2pair usually raise flop so you have way the best hand when you get called down. Sometimes he slowplayed and will raise you but 80% of the time you get called down by AJ, AT type hands.
