      I know I did not play that right cause I lost. When should I have folded?

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:spade: , J:club:
      UTG2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.35, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.25.

      Flop: ($0.75) J:heart: , 6:spade: , 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.55, MP1 raises to $2.55, Hero calls $2.00.

      Turn: ($5.85) 7:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.85, MP1 calls $0.85.

      River: ($7.55) T:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $1.15, Hero calls $1.15.

      Final Pot: $9.85

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows a pair of aces (Ah Ac)
      Hero shows (As Jc)

      MP1 wins with a pair of aces (Ah Ac)

      Hello bobiq,

      Preflop: I guess I would even just fold it preflop, since we just wont hit often enough and even when we do hit we will be OOP. Plus we will never know if our kicker the J is good enough if we for example hit our Ace. We just have to take stabs postflop to play such a Call profitable, which means even bluff time to time.

      As played
      Flop: Rather just Bet/Fold if you want to bet at all.

      As played if flop was Called
      Turn: Doesn't really make sense to bet that smallish, if you want to bet at all then do it properly. But overall I guess I'd just Check and then reevaluate what kind of bet there will be. If it will be a big one then just fold it.

      As played if turn was donked
      River: I'd just fold it I guess, not much we beat anyways against that kind of line. Although for the given odds, I guess it shouldn't be that big mistake. But overall you should have folded even earlier streets.

      Best regards.
