Hi, I wanted a feedback on this hand as well.
The villain is a LAG.

Hi fp,

Just like the other 2 hands, stop limping in. Raise to isolate the limpers in position with AT. Definitely like betting 3 streets for value here, and I would take a bet/fold line all the way. It's a tough river because it improves us but when he check-raises, he rates to show up with a flush a ton of the time the way this hand played out. Just don't check behind on the river for fear of the flush card coming... that's a common mistake that costs tons of value long term. Sometimes he makes a flush and we lose, but more often he'll call our river bet as well and show us A-rag, and checking it down just leaves so much value on the table against all those worse ace hands. So I'm definitely betting this river. If he's really fishy to the point where I thought he would check-call 2 streets with JT then check-raise the river with a worse 2 pair, I might make the crying call, otherwise just exercise the wonderful power of the bet/fold imo, even against a LAG.
