aejones should have AT, AJ, KJ, KT so often here (especially with the ) and Daniel loves to call. I like the intent 3-barrelling with a gutshot to the nuts and blockers against a made straight, but I wouldn't expect Daniel to fold many hands that beat ace high on the river. Maybe it's some sort of value bluff where Daniel can call with KT high but fold a queen (I think JJ and TT are too blockery to fold)?? Yes if Daniel had a busted draw or a flush he probably bets the river, but I think against Daniel this is not a great spot to bluff as you know he's thinking check/call (but a great spot to value bet any big hand).

By the way aejones has AT here which fits his play perfectly.

It's real hard to lay down top pair here. I agree with Daniel that the river bet was probably a bit large (which can be a tip-off to a bluff). The one thing I'd have probably done differently was to bet the turn, instead of checking... to see where I was at.

Yeah TC Daniel says at 1:56 that Aaron showed AT.

I'm looking forward to seeing one of these segments with Daniel where he actually plays a pot IN position. lol

Again it speaks to the power of position, Daniel wins the hand but seems unsure throughout and even says at the end he's not sure he played the hand well. I think, given the situation, he played it perfectly with KQ. He keeps the pot as small as possible and induces from an aggressive player who has position on him.

I'm also not a fan of Aaron's river bluff, DN either has a busted draw and AT is good, or he's getting called. Aaron is trying to represent a strong value line but DN isn't the best target for this river bluff. If Aaron would barrel 3 streets in this fashion with AQ for value (not pot control at any point vs. DN), then I like the representation a lot more, we don't know their history though.

I agree. Whether or not he's ever barrelled 3 streets in the past would be something very noteworthy.

I've never played Aaron Jones but I've listened to the memoirs of A E Jones. He definitely has 3 barrel in his range in situations like this. I like the way Daniel played the hand.

AEJones's ego is so gigantic, I think he was thinking there is no way this "fish" has got the better of me Daniel played it pretty passively. If I were in his shoes I would have led out on the river, and folded to a re-raise Perfect example of why KQ oop is a really tough hand to play..

Ok, if he's 3 barreling a lot here then it's not bad. DN has a rep for being a bit stationy in spots like this, so it's essential that AEJ has mid strength hands like AQ in his 3 barrel range to sell this at all, if he can only have monsters and bluffs DN will call him every time. And given all the info and history I have no doubt AEJ is going for 3 streets with 1 pair hands in this spot, so it's all good.
