      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $2.23
      CO:
      $2.00
      BU:
      $2.59
      SB (Hero):
      $3.05
      BB:
      $2.00


      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, A.
      MP3 raises to $0.08, CO folds, BU calls $0.08, Hero raises to $0.26, 2 folds, BU calls $0.18.

      Flop: ($0.62) J, 9, T (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.62, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.62.

      In hindsight I might have played this differently and shoved, I think. His pre-flop call doesn't really indicate, at least to me, any hands which could easily have lead to a straight here.

      Hello uni1102,

      Preflop: I'd likely raise it bigger here, ~$0.30 being OOP.

      As played
      Flop: Since it's freeplay pot and he doesn't always have to have here nuts, it's NL2 people tend to go broke here with a lot wider range, I'd just Bet/Call his shove in this case. Could easily be a weaker hand like QJ or maybe even just some QT or whatever type of hand, QQ, KK. Just Check/Folding AA in 3bet pot in NL2 is way too weak on such board.

      Best regards.
