      Position:
      Stack
      BB:
      $5.81
      Hero:
      $11.42

      0.05/0.10 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 5:spade: , A:diamond:
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.60) 3:heart: , J:diamond: , 2:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($1.40) 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, BB folds.

      Final Pot: $2.40

      Imo A5 is a little to strong to fold it in HU. I think this is good spot to fire second barrel, because he shouldn´t call two bets with middle pair or even maybe J with weak kicker.

      hmm. i don´t like this spot for a second barrel. He will call a lot of draws + J + 2. He will only fold a 3 or 44-TT.

      I've seen flop calls worse than my hand. Pot isn't too big and it's hard to call to bets even with AT, A9. He could be also on the flush draw. Firing second barrel on that board isn't always bad:)

      oh, btw, raise 40 preflop, or fold, this is weird...

      I always raise SB vs BB 3 blinds even with AA. While playing oop I dont want to build big pots. Why should I bet more pre-flop?

      because you don't want to play oop at all, so don't invite him :p

      I mean, betting more preflop is a way to get them out on the spot, because in a sb. vs. bb, the bb is always ahead (except heads up)

      On NL 10 level there are also quite a lot SSS players and it is good to steal against these players any two (unfortunately they sometimes push:D , so I have to fold A5 type of hand), this way I gain more value by betting one big blind less. Good amount of number would be 3,5 BB, but on Nl 10 it doesn't make much sense. But I consider betting more SB vs BB.
