I read its also a good idea to just fold to aggression a lot of the time. Turn and river raises often being very strong hands were up against, TPTK usually beat. Personally ive also found floating the flop is OK, as well as cbetting. But when we get to the turn people are rarely double barreling us, or floating again with air. Whilst making sure we play in position almost all of the time, it is easy to control pots at lower stakes. I.e If villain cbets a low board from MP, we can float and a large amount of the time when they miss, they will give up after the cbet, meaning we can just confidently bet the turn and take it down, often with nothing. Likewise if were the aggressor with the air, we'll often be checked to, then we'll cbet. If called, we can assess the turn. Some players even donk bet turn in which we easily fold, and if checked to we can simply check behind and see a free river.
Is all what ive said reasonably true regarding the aggression? I need to get out of a little habit of calling off turn and river bets, when im either; annoyed that he's hit his draw and my decent hand is now probably beat but pay off anyway, or just generally not respecting raises enough from bad players. Turn and river bets also obviously being bigger bets, thus affecting our WR more than Pre and flop betting.
