      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , J:spade:
      3 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BB calls $0.06, CO calls $0.06.

      Hero raises $0.6 (All-In), BB calls $0.60.

      River: ($1.80) A:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $1.80

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ah Js)
      BB shows four-of-a-kind, sixes (6d 6c)

      BB wins with four-of-a-kind, sixes (6d 6c)

      I think I played my AJo like I was supposed to on the flop. Somewhat dry board, me with the top pair strong kicker - so bet 2/3 pot.

      When one opponent called, I assumed he was on a flush draw or a low pair, or top pair lower kicker. He might have also had trips or two pair.

      On the turn, against this opponent, was it wrong to have assumed to have a strong hand at this point? The opponent very well could have called with a flush draw or TP low kicker. Perhaps being out of position should have convinced me to check/fold?

      (I was kinda excited when I caught that A on the river... but lol my opponent had 4ofakind)

      Hello hoonji126,

      Preflop: I'd raise it even bigger for 1 limper and being OOP, ~$0,12.
      Postflop: Not much to do while you just have such a small stack left. I am shipping as well on turn.

      Add to full stack if you playing BSS.

      Best regards.
