      Villain looked very loose. He just had raised 85o UTG.
      What's the best line here against a LAG? Should I make a blocking bet (turn or river) to avoid a big river bluff?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, A.
      MP2 raises to $0.15, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.45, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($0.95) J, 4, J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.45, MP2 calls $0.45.

      Turn: ($1.85) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75.

      River: ($3.35) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $2.75, Hero calls $2.75.

      Final Pot: $8.85.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and jacks(Ac As).
      MP2 shows a pair of jacks(Qs 7s).

      Hero wins with two pairs, aces and jacks(Ac As).

      3b bigger preflop since you are deep and you are OOP.

      Postflop just bet/bet/bet. No need to do anything fancy on these limits.

      I like how you played your hand
      Very likely that you´re ahead on the turn, but he won´t really call down 3 streets too often with worse hands, so turn you A into bluff catcher and c/c turn and river seems very good plan against lag, that would likely would barrel with anything that he floated on the flop
