      CO: $2.49
      BTN: $2.37
      SB: $5.08
      BB: $2.47
      UTG: $1.98
      UTG+1: $1.97
      Hero (UTG+2): $1.95

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG+2 with J :spade: J :heart:
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.08, Hero calls $0.08, 6 folds

      Flop: ($0.19) J :club: 3 :club: A :heart: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $0.09, Hero calls $0.09

      Turn: ($0.37) K :club: (2 players)
      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $0.24, UTG+1 calls $0.24

      River: ($0.85) A :diamond: (2 players)
      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $0.81, UTG+1 calls $0.81

      I would like to know,please,if i extracted maximum value and if i didnt,what should i have done to maximize value.On the river i was putting him on a weak ace.Shoving it seemed to obvious and since i thought he had a weak ace (because he was passive with it and he was probably putting me on an ace too) i just bet the pot.
      Thank you.

      First of all i would recomend you to use the auto function to rebuy to 100 bb when ever you falls below it.

      You should really re raise him on that flop, he will never be good enough to fold a pair or atleast not at NL 2 you got to defend against possible flushdraws. On the turn you can bet a little bit bigger something like 0.50$ , if you would re raise on the flopp i mean then. And then you can push it all in to the river.

      As he seems to be a callingstation, then we want to value bet big! To get our hand all in to the river.

      Hello Ectoz,

      Flop: I'd raise it right here to protect from any kind of draw and also value from Ax. :)

      As played
      Turn: You can even bet bigger here, ~$0,30.
      River: Sometimes if I see him often having the Ace here and also seeing him as a fish then I am shoving directly in here, but as you see it would be a lot easier to get his money if you just would have raised on flop.

      Best regards.
