      CO: $6.00
      BTN: $13.63
      SB: $2.65
      Hero (BB): $10.00
      UTG: $2.55
      MP: $21.50 33/13/28(Afreq) on 57h sample.
      CO posts a big blind ($0.10)

      Pre Flop: ($0.25) Hero is BB with A :diamond: Q :club:
      1 fold, MP calls $0.10, CO checks, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, MP calls $0.40, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.15) A :spade: 8 :diamond: J :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, MP raises to $1.80, Hero calls $0.90

      Turn: ($4.75) K :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks

      River: ($4.75) T :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.20, MP calls $1.20

      I think that it's a pretty easy call on the flop, because the player is shaping up to be a fish and it's just a minraise. On turn i checked to induce further bluffs. On river i figured that there are no hands that villain would bluff itself that's why i went for something that could look like a scared raise and maybe get a re-raise from some 2-pairs, or at least a call like here. So any ideas about the river play? Any better way to get value from worse?

      Hello Pichux,

      Preflop: Being OOP and having 1 limper + 1 dead blind posted I'd even raise it bigger, ~$0,70.

      As played
      River: You may even consider betting it bigger here, ~$2+ or something similar. He may still Call us with a lot worse.

      Best regards.
