LJ position, tourney was about midway through, blinds were 3k/6k with an ante, had 90BB and dealt AA. action folds to me and I raise 3bb, action folds to button who calls, SB folds and BB calls. Button has my stack covered by about 5BB

Flop - Jc Td 8h

BB checks, I bet half pot, button calls and BB folds

Turn - 9c

I check and button bets half pot, I lay it down. I dunno if that was the right play though as I didn't think the button would bluff in that situation. Was it the right play?

Thanks for the replies! Since I live in a state where regulated sites can not operate, is there a site that would be recommended? I've played on Ignition, ACR and BetOnline.

I also l 5-10 minutes from a casino, would I be better off playing tables there?

Hello! New to this site. Started playing NLHE back in the 2000s growing up, until around 2011. Just recently started again in Feb this year and looking on how to improve. I've only played a few thousand hands in the last month and can't seem to really gain any ground.

I started on ACR, playing NL2 and did ok on it but was still loosing. Moved to ignition NL5, done mediocre. Started Sit n Gos and I've cashed and won a few, but also lost more than won. I've played around 5 low stakes tourney's and finished in the money in two, one finishing in 7th. I've started studying more, reading Mastering Small Stakes No Limit book, about half way through. Studied charts as well and have a good understanding of GTO. I have around 1400 hands in cash, around 900 in tourneys since I started in February

I have a hand I recently played that I'm not sure I played correctly, and this would sum up a lot of hands I find myself in.
On the CO with AJs diamonds, UTG raises 2bb, action folds to me and I call, SB/BB calls
flop Tc Ah 8h
UTG cbets half pot, I call and BB call
Turn 5c
BB check, UTG bets half the pot, I call, BB folds
River 8d
UTG bets just under the pot, putting me all in, where I fold.
Is that a spot where I should have maybe 3 bet pre flop, or raise the UTG bet? If not, was it just a call to showdown or was folding turn/river the better play?

Is my value betting off? Do I not 3bet enough?

Thank you for the help and suggestions!
