      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:diamond: , Q:heart:
      UTG1 calls $0.02, 5 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, UTG1 calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.19) A:club: , K:spade: , 5:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero bets $0.1, UTG1 calls $0.10.

      UTG1 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($0.39) K:heart: (2 players)
      UTG1 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $0.39

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG1 shows (Qc Jd)
      Hero shows two-pair, aces and kings (Ad Qh)

      Hero wins with two-pair, aces and kings (Ad Qh)


      Preflop: should have raised to 10c because of the limper, yes yes I know.
      Flop: again bet size should probably be slightly bigger 12c, but I have been cbetting 10c this session and didn't want to change when I hit something.
      Turn: I have "only" top pair so I check behind for pot control.
      River: again check behind as I don't think a worse hand will call me and now I lose to any Kx.

      I am not sure about check behind on turn - was this too passive and missing value? Would enough worse hands call a 2nd barrel here?

      Howdy,

      That guy seems like monkey, so there's no way I'd stop betting at any point.
      As you said, you can make it slightly more on flop, but the main point - just keep betting turn, because he seems like he's capable of calling with worse Ax/Kx hands or draws, so there's no need to go for pot control and miss value.

      Good luck!
