      4 folds, MP3 bets $0.30, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) 5, 8, 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.45) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, MP3 calls $0.70

      River: ($2.85) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks

      Total pot: $2.85 | Rake: $0.19

      No reads on villain. I checked river, with hope of villain having an ace and deciding to value bet. Not a wise choice. I put villain on AJ+ and TT+. Do bash me!

      P.S. It sorta dawned on me that if villain indeed had TT+, then even pot-raising flop woulda been ok :f_mad:

      He is not always going to bet his ace on the river, so I think if you took that line then best is just to bet out river yourself
      Also you can´t c/r, since 78 got there and you can´t expect player to b/c always with Ax hand, so he should have there two pair to call your c/r.
      I´d personally c/r flop, bet turn and shove river to make sure all the money would go the pot till river

      Hello dubadal,

      Flop: One of the worst line you could pick is Check/Call the flop. Basically just Check/Raise it if anything at all, even donking is better.

      As played
      Turn: If you want to bet it here then do it as well properly and about $1 at least.
      River: Bet for value yourself as well. He will basically just Check behind his weak pairs here which he may still Call vs our bet.

      Best regards.
