Turn is X and I'm in x/f-mode, since to me it it's just spew to continue here vs. these guys, even if turn is a Q.
Also, like 1% of this player pool is actually positional aware I've noticed. There's a lot of "regs" who seem to adjust a little bit getting closer to the BTN, but most of them are weaktight and still have vpip of only 20 on btn. And these guys really dont fold to 3bets.
ahhh, we get some clues as to your leaks here.
1) AJ/KQ/99+ (7.5%) isn't necessarily unreasonable, but it's definitely not "pretty light." a 33 vpip guy is probably opening something like 35% from the CO. that's ~ 22+, 46s+, 78o+, Ax, etc. you can raise more hands for value against this player.
2) but you're probably reticent to raise more hands because you're playing fit-or-fold postflop which is costing you a ton of money. i'd guess this is your biggest leak by far. if you raise from a blind, continuation bet the flop, and then give up every turn you're not made, it's going to be profitable for your opponents to call your flop bets with ANY TWO CARDS intending to steal when you check the turn. (think thru the pot odds
of an example if this isn't abundantly clear). you can't give up that often. double barrel more (especially against wide ranges), and consider checkraising the turn, both for value and as bluffs (against stack sizes that can fold of course) more often.
