      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.96 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A:club: , Q:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, MP2 raises to $0.40, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.20.

        I was facing a weak-ish raise. Should I just fold here?

      Flop: ($0.87) A:diamond: , K:heart: , 3:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.4, Hero calls $0.40.

        As played, should I lead out and bet all streets? I was second-guessing if I should donk-bet here because I might be behind.

      Turn: ($1.67) 6:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.66, Hero calls $0.66.

      River: ($2.99) 8:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      Final Pot: $2.99

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of aces (Ac Qc)
      MP2 shows (Ks Qs)

      Hero wins with a pair of aces (Ac Qc)

      Preflop I guess you can't really fold but you should play wearily postflop if he shows agression on like more than one street and you just have a pair.

      On flop I think ch/call is fine. On turn I also prefer to ch/call - let him either valuebet worse or bluff at you. (It's less likely he has AK now since K came on the flop). When he bets so small I am going to just call again because I just see no value in raising.

      On river you could think about donk/folding since his turn bet looks pretty weakish but I still expect him to often have a pair on this kind of board so maybe bet out $1.5 to try and get a call from AJ etc.

      Hope it helps.

      Also please don't post results.
