      Hero (SB): $10.32
      BB: $9.90
      UTG: $2.90 Unknown, considered bad due to stack size and limping UTG.
      CO: $10.28
      BTN: $2.85

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with A :heart: 6 :diamond:
      UTG calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 1 fold, UTG calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.90) 5 :diamond: A :club: 7 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, UTG calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.10) J :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.40, Hero raises to $2, UTG folds

      The reason why i checked the turn was the villains stack size. The thing was that during the play i was struggling to decide, whether this is way ahead/way behind or should i just get max value here. At last my plan was to get it all-in by any means. When he only bets this small it's pretty easy for me, but i think i would have called if he shoved himself.

      Hello Pichux,

      Preflop: Horrible raise against such a small stack, I'd more often inclined to just fold the hand.

      As played
      Flop: Bet for protection and like get it in against this stack.
      Turn: Shove (bet as big his stack is) yourself since we really don't know if the opponent is going to Bet, no stats on his AF. Try to protect.

      Best regards.
