      bb is unknown. MP 24/22/5, 122 hnds. Assume MP will very often call his pps in this spot, even oop, since we are so deep. I don't expect him to 4b even JJ/QQ as he wont want to face a 5b. I also doubt he will call AQ oop, since he cant play a big pot with it.

      On flop, we're not worried about bb ofc. I feel I don't need to protect much vs MP's range - we are wa/wb, imo. For this reason, ok to check behind? I just dont see ever getting called by worse (maybe JJ calls one street).

      I guess when villain leads out 2/3 pot on turn he can be betting some lower pps if he puts me on AK/AQ that missed and is giving up, so call seems correct.

      River is not great to face another bet around 1/2 pot but I think since we underrepped our hand, we probably have to call? He will certainly have QQ/TT/33/22 quite often, but still.

      Is this a bad way with AA so deep, or ok? I feel that against a competent player, betting the flop wont achieve much?

      i'd play it exactly the same so deep.
      Btw.: AQ didn't miss.... :-)
      And as he can have exactly that hand => nh!

      What did he have? If indeed QQ it's just a cooler and you lost the minimum.

      you can check back flop, but I´d still prefer c-bet.
      Just against two players even if they have smt like 55 or TT you still want that one of them would fold, since if you´re against 2 outs then it is much better situation than you´re against 4 outs that would cost you a lot of money on the turn and river, since you never can fold there aces unless it is overbets.
      And on that board you can also safely b/f, since nl 50 isn´t really no-one that sick who would c/r there Qx or even flushdraws and since he can´t have Qxss then it mostly is sets
