      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (9 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from

      MP3 ($34.17)
      CO ($10.24)
      Hero (Button) ($10.10)
      SB ($15.88)
      BB ($83.67)
      UTG ($25)
      UTG+1 ($7.79)
      MP1 ($25)
      MP2 ($12.11)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with A, 3
      6 folds, Hero bets $0.50, SB calls $0.40, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.25) 9, A, A (2 players)
      SB bets $1, Hero calls $1

      Turn: ($3.25) 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.50, 1 fold

      Total pot: $3.25 | Rake: $0.16

      would it be better to check on turn here as I don't think many worse hands will call me there. there is not much to extract. however I might be able to catch a bluff on the river by calling a bet there or in case of a check. bet the river.

      Hey thazar,

      Nice hand!

      I would play the same way. You want value from PPs and 9xs on the turn. You could try to cb turn if villain was aggressive, but generally I like the line you took.
