      Probably a bit loose to raise pre (Table is loose and I think I can get a payout from Lower Aces when I hit btw), but Postflop I can't really play this any other way can I?

      Open raising ATs from MP1 is fine imo. A bit loose but not that much.

      On that turn with the nuts I like betting too, a flushdraw may call, but for sure will check behind if you check. And with a paired board even if it hits on the river it will mostly just call a river bet, but will fold unimproved on the river, so you'd be losing value against a flushdraw by checking the turn.

      And if villain is holding an ace, we want a big pot so we bet.

      against unknown you should bet, if you know that player is trying to float then c/r is also ok.
