Hey man thanks for comments, going by memory here so if you feel I'm talking about wrong hands let me know. Next time it would be good if you could include a time so it's easy to review :)

QQ - think the board was 889tt....8? If an A or K came on river it would suck but I could maybe find a call if he played it the same with the fact that the draws missed (even though a lot of flush draws contain an A or K), but his bet was fairly small and they are cards I expect him to bluff sometimes.

A9 - I don't mind my flop call, iirc he bet <half pot and he has a large donk percent. He'll be doing this with a lot of draws which include worse aces with a gutter (think board was J52tt) so A3, A4, he won't be folding to a raise because of the type of player he is so I don't want to build a bigger pot as he can bet/call...donk lead turn again. On the turn I could maybe fold but I now have a gutter myself and A or 9 could give me best hand. Think I said in the video maybe I can fold here but his sizing lead me to believe he had diamonds.
Folding flop/turn can't be too bad though as he can def barrel his missed draws and finding a call will be more difficult on latter streets so I agree with you to an extent

QJ - If it's the hand I'm thinking of I was in position where as the AJ I was out of position??

AQ - he's a standard reg so it has to be a misclick, I assume he was dragging the slider as it's preflop and I don't think many type in pfr amounts. Maybe I'll get owned here in future if you are right though ;)

QQ - I like your check back on the turn. Although jamming the river I am not sure whether he is going to call with worse here. I wouldn't expect him to call to split the pot. Also what would you do on a A or K river?

A9 - I think you are spewing money here. Either raise or fold the flop and I don't really like raise because I don't think he is folding much. I would just muck it and stack him later :)

AJ - If you check/call with TPTK why don't you also do that when you had JQ as it's against the same guy. Both times the draws bricked.

AQ - Not really sure how $8 is a misclick, hes gonna be pressing like 1 2 or 3 on the keyboard, I don't see how it's possible at all to click the 8. But I guess NH
