Hi, the villain is a TAG player. The flop bet seemed to me a little too much to sound like he had an Ace. But since he raised UTG, he's a TAG, and I was OOP (absolute and relative) I think the fold is appropriate.
What u guys think ?

Hi fp ,

I think your play on this hand is pretty standard and I agree with it 100%. There seems to be very little chance your hand his actually good right now, and in the few cases it is, the villain's equity is likely solid (2 overs + a flush draw is actually a small favorite over you even). And you can easly be drawing to 2 or only 1 out here. And you are out of position. Yep, easy fold.

BTW his bet sizing to me looks pretty common for a made hand trying to "protect" against a single heart, so I think AK/AQ is very reasonable to see in this spot.
