      AKo again. I was assuming he could call with Ax. The river bet is a bit suspicious, but could be a bluff. How would you play this hand?

      Hello feketepok,

      Flop: CBet doesn't have to be that big, ~$0.15 should be enough.

      As played
      Turn: You could also consider just Check/Calling, depending on the opponent but if you think he is loose enough then Betting yourself is totally fine. Just the problem is that he will have hard time Calling with a lot worse here if he didn't hit the Ace.
      River: I don't think that people in NL2 bluff in such spots, it's either an Ace or even better hand. As he Called us on turn then you can likely bet yourself here, ~$0.60 to avoid Checking him behind with weaker hands.

      Best regards.
