      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , Q:heart:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0,10, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0,10, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0,60, UTG2 calls $0,50, MP3 folds.

      Flop: ($1,35) J:club: , 7:diamond: , 6:spade: (2 players)

      Turn: ($3,35) A:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, UTG2 calls $2,00.

      River: ($7,35) T:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $2,05, Hero calls $2,05.

      Final Pot: $11,45

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows (3s 3c)
      Hero shows a pair of aces (Ac Qh)

      Hero wins with a pair of aces (Ac Qh)

      Preflop: UTG2 is still unknown with good tendency to be a fish, and MP3 is def. a fish, so it's a clear value raise

      Flop: Don't really like it much, but against 1 opp I think it's contibetable (is this a new word?)

      Turn: Great card for me, I'm value betting aggain. I made it $2 and I think J could call again, but in very same moment 89 crosses my mind and I thought I should made it $2.50

      River: Standard, scarecard comes on river. 89 got me, JT got, and he bets 1/3 of pot. It really looks to me like value bet, so what to do? And what to do if bet was something like 2/3 of pot - full pot?

      Hi Oly0909!

      Preflop: ok
      Flop: standard C-bet is fine to 1 player,

      Turn: The board is still pretty dry, so you do no need to protect. Therefore your $2 is fine, but as you mentioned $2.5 might be better. I would be barreling here any Q, K and rag (e.g. 2, 3) that does not complete anything)

      River: Do you always expect your opponents hit gutshot by river? With his low AF (still limited sample size), you have safe fold if he raises you.
      You can still bet something like 1/2 POT and hope that Jx hand will find call, and fold if raised (JT is the most likely hand he would hit here). He's going to check behind with all worst hands most of the time.

      I believe that you cannot fold here even to POT size bet, check looks you are weak and giving up.

      Regards
