      Hi,


      I'm fine calling preflop with AQs, since it can make better hands than just top pairs.

      As played flop is fine and turn is bad for us, now we don't even beat AJ anymore and AT might not bet twice / still has an OESD to go with its top pair. Against tight players at nl10 I think that turn is foldable, they won't valuebet worse hands often enough in my opinion. Still, standard is probably to still call the turn, but I'd fold the river. He bet way bigger than on earlier streets and I don't even think most regs will play AQ that strong.


      Hope it helps.
