Hi Ads!

Preflop play is fine.

I think when you've missed the flop you have to choose between plans:

I quite like just folding to the CBet here. I know it's a bit nitty, but At 2NL I think it's best to avoid most bluffs and just take your main profit from spots where you have clear value.

However you chose to float, which is also OK as you might still have the best hand. However I think if you're going to float like this, you should bet the turn if it's checked to you and try to get villain to fold his small pocket pairs or 88-JJ or for value vs AJ/AT. I'm not sure you'll be successful because most people at 2NL don't know where the fold button is, which is why I prefer the fold OTF.

Depending on a read, I'd often 4-bet pre.

If you're floating the flop, it should be with a plan to steal the pot away on the turn, because hoping to hit a 6-outer isn't really advisable, particularly as villain could have AQ and have you reverse dominated. Since villain did indeed check the turn, you should bet to represent the queen.
