|Something important i realised

Watched aba's video today and among other great things, i noticed something important - while he raised "speculative hands" like J9s UTG, he threw away A3o, even when it was folded to him on the button.
I knew even before of course, that Arag offsuit is pure trash, but i still used to raise it on the button.The problem is, this hand is so easily dominated and it's hard to get away from in medium pot after you get called by one of the blinds (example: you raise A6o OTB, BB calls, flop A7J, you decided to use deception and check, after he checks to you, he bets the turn, you call, he bets the river, you call, and you lose to AT.Or you could bet the flop, get called, check the turn for pot control and to induce a bluff and call the river, but still, mostly you are in trouble when an A flops).On the other hands, suited connectors and hands like QTs are less likely to be dominated.
So, i'll take notice on that one.
