      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A:club: , Q:diamond:
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 6 folds, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.17) A:heart: , K:club: , 7:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.11, BB calls $0.11.

      Turn: ($0.39) 3:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($0.39) T:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.14, BB raises to $0.28, Hero calls $0.14.

      Final Pot: $0.95

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ac Qd)
      BB shows a straight, ace high (Qs Jc)

      BB wins with a straight, ace high (Qs Jc)

      Preflop, flop: hopefully standard
      Turn: here was my reason for the check behind. I think if I bet, it's unlikely worse aces will call. But if I check behind so my flop cbet looks more like a bluff, he might call another bet or bluff himself on the river.
      River: probably minraise=nuts but given the odds, can I really fold here?

      Hello member001,

      You may as well Bet the turn for value and maybe even for protection. Otherwise I guess I'd as well Call for the given odds, although I don't really see us being ahead there, might as well just fold it right there.

      Best regards.
