      Hi,

      Why would you want to shove the turn?
      Your stack size is there 0.54 so I like your turn bet.
      Well the A on the river doesnt change that much since there arent that many Ax in his range anymore. But you prolly wont get much more value from worse hands so check back is fine.

      So nh.

      T.

      Hey qxtwo,

      The board is like the drawiest it gets therefore you should bet bigger, like 0.13$ on the flop and 0.30-0.35$ on the turn.

      Check back on the river is well played. His hand might have improved(AT/AJ/KQ/A:spade: x:spade:) and also A is a scare card for him, so he will be less inclined to call you with a worse hand there.
