Default Another tough hand against a TAG villain.

Villain is 21/7 over 150 hands.

I expect villain to raise AJ+ out of that position there, however his pre flop raise % is low. I decided to keep the pot small and check/call to the river, but the river screwed me and I think that is an obvious fold. How is my turn play?

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $ Hero (6 max, 4 handed) internettexasholdem.com

UTG ($312.95)
Button ($45.77)
SB ($429.20)
Hero ($200)

Preflop: Hero is BB with T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]. SB posts a blind of $1.
UTG calls $2, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, SB (poster) completes, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $7</font>, UTG calls $7, SB folds.

Flop: ($20) 4[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $19</font>, UTG calls $19.

Turn: ($58) 2[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
Hero checks, <font color="#CC3333">UTG bets $35</font>, Hero calls $35.

River: ($128) Q[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
Hero checks, <font color="#CC3333">UTG bets $50</font>, Hero folds.

Final Pot: $178

Rivers a fold. Looks like he maybe has bigger A/heart or both.

Here's a question, with no heart on river, are you folding to a half pot-ish bet? If so, I think I like leading turn for 2/3 and folding to raise.

What is your play on the river if he calls a 2/3 turn bet and it blanks?

You can block, but i prob c/f to real bet. A very tight player has limped UTG, called raise, called bets on flop and turn. looks bad.

Fold is absolutely the right way to go here. Why r u raising pre with such a marginal hand as A/T?

Preflop raise is not bad but had to be bigger
