      Certainly a fine line if you can put some double barrels in his turn range, because you don't beat much of what he actually bets for value unless he's opening every suited Ax from UTG and betting the turn with those by default.

      I'm assuming most nl10 tags will have a raising range UTG that is more the likes of AJo+/ATs+/AA, maybe A9s if we push it a bit, as far as Ax hands are concerned (can't see him bet twice with JJ-KK really people just don't). Which means on that turn you don't beat anything that he bets for value with, and since he can't be barreling flushdraws, you have to actually believe he's barreling turned OESD/gutshots as a standard to balance out the times where you're just getting valuetowned.

      I think this is a common leak at microstakes to call two bets by default with top pairs in spots where it's really hard for tag villains to actually have worse hands.

      Hope it helps.
