re: Poker & Positional aggression
For future reference: Don't be afraid to get caught making this move. What happens for me (especially in tournaments, but also in small stakes) is usually I'll get a caller or two, and if they call, depending on stack sizes and such, I'll fire a second bullet at the pot on the turn, regardless of what it is.

This puts into the opponents mind that you CAN beat top pair, and they're not likely to continue without something that can beat top pair as well. The reason I'm saying that you shouldn't worry about getting caught is because you're only going to miss the fllop 66%. Now if you decide to use positional aggression from the button, no one is going to catch on that you ALWAYS do it in only three orbits. Just be selective about when you decide to muscle everyone around. Instead of doing it on the button everytime be tricky, switch over to Late-middle position or even try to muscle it under the gun (That'll only work if you have a good TAG image, otherwise they'll muscle it right back from you).
I only utilize positional aggression when there's little to no action in front of me. And dont' be afraid to lose your preflop raise when you fold to a raise and re-raise on the flop, or even the turn.
The most critical part of this is the set up. Spend a bit of time just playing a standard TAG game, get that image in their head that you want good hands. Not premium hands, necessarily, but good ones. Chances are on any board where an overcard hits their pair, they're not going to want to continue with it.
I'm really tired right now so if any of this is jumbled or doesn't makie any sense I'm sorry. lol
