Man I'm off today missed that the river paired. Thought the river put a 4 to a straight out there...

there is this thing that live recreational players do and it is one reason why they don't do so well.
Ask a recreational player to range a villain and they always narrow it down to just one hand.
The fact that you aren't worried because you put him on TPTK w Ace of diamonds is what rec fish do. Not trying to be mean, just telling you like it is.
Originally I skimmed through the hand and didn't see the river paired the board which makes it even worse for us. The fact that villain raised us on turn should immediately tell us he has a flush or set...
The fact you think he would raise you on a flush and straight board with AJo is pretty bad and you need to think a lot more about that.
In any event, welcome to 2+2, hope you stick around and put the work in.
