      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, K.
      MP1 calls $0.05, MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 3 folds, MP1 calls $0.15, MP2 calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.67) 2, 5, 8 (3 players)
      MP1 checks, MP2 bets $0.05, Hero raises to $0.25, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($1.17) 6 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.05, Hero raises to $0.72, MP2 calls $0.67.

      River: ($2.61) 2 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.87(All-In), Hero calls $0.74(All-In).

      Final Pot: $4.22.

      It was an interesting situation before 1 hour. Preflop is standard - late position with AK. Flop wasn't pretty, but i saw that MP2 was min betting, which makes me wonder that he had anything at all. I decide raising him to make him get away, but for some reason he calls. Turn comes 6, which doesn't bothers me and after one more minbet i decide to make another raise. He calls immediately which makes me think that he is slowplaying monster hand like AA or KK. On this blank river he goes all in and that brings me a lot of thinking, because everything was so strange and i thought that im trapped, but i decided to call because i was with less than half my stack.

      Hello!

      Yes this is an interesting hand because I disagree with all four streets + its descriptions. Allow me to tell you why:

      Preflop: I like raising it to $0.25 at least. The more money you get in with your good hands, the better and the more money you will make in long run!

      On the Flop, if you want to raise him. Please raise according to the POT instead of his betsize. He gets 4.5:1 to call your $0.25 raise so it is not a big surprise he is calling you. I make it $0.6 here if you raise

      On the Turn would either call his minbet to spike my Ace or King or shove. I prefer the call because you are hoping he folds when you shove which isn't completely reliable while calling and hitting a A or K is

      The Riverspot as played is a straight fold! The reason if having less than <50% of your stack does not mean anything. If you are always beat then putting the money in here doesn't make sense

      Best regards,
      Gerv
