      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,20, 2 folds, CO calls $0,20, BU calls $0,20, SB folds, BB calls $0,15.

      Hero bets $1,55, CO calls $1,55.

      Final Pot: $6,52

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ah 9h)
      CO shows a pair of aces (Ad Ks)

      CO wins with a pair of aces (Ad Ks)
      I hit the top pair but had a weak kicker. All CO did was to limp, so I thought he aimed for a flush or a gutshot. You think i made the right decision by raising the whole time?

      Hello WiNzett,

      Flop: Basically I'd just bet the flop bigger like $0,65.
      Turn: As well a bit bigger like $1,20.
      River: And I'd just Check it, you ain't getting value from a lot weaker hands here anyways and most likely he is going to fold worse pairs.

      Best regards.
