Sadly you are wrong and he's absolutely right. As people have mentioned before, you can get enough info from one hand let alone 32. Obviously not a vast amount of date sometimes enough to sway a decision.

Raise more from UTG. 2x is too low.
I would bet/call as I don't want to give any club draws a free card and you can get called by a a pretty wide range. Yes getting raised kinda sucks but you can call and go from there. Also no info on villain so you can't assume that 'we're going to get raised here pretty often'
-After x/c then I think you have to play it how it was as villain could have missed draws. TT/JJ even.
Most important thing here is to raise larger pre and not assume we are going to get raised on this board often...especially with no reads

My 4betting game isn't strong and I'm not sure what to do in certain situations. I would certainly 4bet AK, QQ+ here for value. But I think 4betting this hand will just fold out everything weaker and keep in hands that generally have me crushed.
Both situations suck as I have to play a lot of flops where I see overcards OOP but 4betting a strongish hand like this and then having to fold to a shove would suck as well...would love to here your thoughts on 4betting game...I'm slowly improving but I don't want to be tilting myself and 4bet weaker hands without knowing specific reasons why
I don't believe leading is an option as I am only getting called by worse and I don't give the villain chance to bluff.

I would have thought that I can dominate a lot of hands that are opening from MP, it's not a very very tight range at all? Tight yes, very very tight not so much?
It's not that I am not giving credit, I am merely stating my opinion and enjoy discourse...I certainly do not think I am great or anything but I am willing to think for myself as well. (I state think, not think I am right...in fact I don't mind being shown that I am wrong at all)
Not sure where I did the pot odds wrong? Isn't it Risk/Risk+Reward to figure out your requited equity?
Yeah as stated I'm not sure why I didn't bet the turn and it's probably one of those hands where you think 'what the hell was I thinking' when you view it in the replayer. I do indeed have many leaks but hopefully this forum will help at least a few of them.

I have AQo in my calling range preflop against most of the population. Having a calling range of only AKo+ and ATs+ is far too nitty in my opinion. Turning a decent, albeit not amazing hand into a 3bet bluff preflop I think is a mistake. I use AJo as my 3bet bluff preflop against most regs as that is not good enough to call with

Clear 3bet for value
I think he could still represent a large-ish part of his range here and so I COULD elect to just check/call and keep in all his bluffs but could possible miss out on value with his Ax hands that just made TP but might fold if a 3rd space came or another scare card, his flush draws that could still call my shove, pair and flush draw hands.
However obviously just shipping here could also get all worse hands to fold and only getting called by better (although I do still think he could call with a lot worse hands given his semi-fishy stats)

What you mentioned about fold to 3bet is a very good point, so good in fact that I went ahead and quickly made a custom popup to make sure I know exactly where villains are folding from. I tend to do it sometimes but hopefully my new popup hud will make it a lot easier for me to check quickly, especially against more competent regs. Thanks for the help buddy, really appreciate it

As soon as the raise came in it seems like a pretty easy fold but would love to know what you think

Yeah it's all well and good having the best tools but I also don't feel like getting these programs and not knowing how to use them is going to be a good strategy in my poker development at the moment. I can see people getting put off because they've jumped straight into GTO theory and everything else, whilst ignoring the most fundamental aspects of poker. You can't just become the best by having the best programs. A solid foundation is also pretty important. Obviously the aim is to be able to understand every theory and strategy but sometimes too much information can be detremental to your overall success.
Either way, I'll definitely have a look at those tools and see if they can help me with my current state of developement.
