      Hand that is typical of how I've been running. I'm pot controlling the turn and giving him the chance to bet missed draws and worse 2-pair hands on the river. 9x, 8x. He might also take this like with flopped set/straight Kx hands. Maybe I should just be folding the river?

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:heart: , A:diamond:
      MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 4 folds, BB calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($0.85) 9:spade: , 8:heart: , 6:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.7, BB calls $0.70.

      Turn: ($2.25) K:heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($2.25) K:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.5, Hero calls $1.50.

      Final Pot: $5.25

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ah Ad)
      BB shows a straight, ten high (Tc 7d)

      BB wins with a straight, ten high (Tc 7d)

      Bet turn for value $1.6.
      Checking doesn't achieve anything. He's very unlikely to checkraise-bluff, so we can comfortably fold to a checkraise.

      In case he check-calls the turn I'd put in another half potbet on the river (and again fold if he checkraises).
