      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (3 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, J.
      BU raises to $0.06, SB folds, Hero calls $0.04.

      Flop: ($0.13) J, K, A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.08, Hero raises to $0.24, BU calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.61) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.38, BU calls $0.38.

      River: ($1.37) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.32, BU calls $1.32.

      Final Pot: $4.01.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and jacks(A J).
      BU shows two pairs, aces and kings(A K).

      BU wins with two pairs, aces and kings(A K).

      BU has VPIP / PFR 35 / 4 (PFR on the Button: 8) and AF 2.0, sample size 77.

      Considering BU's very tight raise range of 8% (on the button), I wasn't quiet sure how good me 2 pair was in this situation, but I decided to play the hand aggressively.

      My pot sized bet on the river was probably too high. I was going to bet $1, but as I only had $ 1,32 left, I decided to go all in.

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Preflop: Kinda close although doable for the reason that we are HU.
      Postflop: I'd even Check/Raise bigger ~$0,30. As played I'd as well bet the turn bigger ~$0,45 and ship the river as you did. He may still have worse aces which may Call us.

      Best regards.
