      So I am thinking I am losing some value on the river by not making thin value bets with TPTK, usually AK. I am more aggressive when I hit the K but with the A I have been sucked out on so many times by Ax hitting their kicker as well that I am more cautious.

      Pre flop with hindsight I think a better play is to 3bet OOP but probably marginal.

      Here I c/r the flop OOP for info and get flat called. So I immediately go in c/c mode on the turn and the river gets checked down.

      Q is should I be thin value betting the turn and/or river?

      Many thanks.
