      Again, both villains are pretty unknown given the small number of hands, although they're shaping up to look like calling stations.
      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:spade: , K:spade:
      2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.12, SB calls $0.11, 2 folds, CO calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.40) A:heart: , Q:club: , 7:spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, CO checks, Hero bets $0.28, SB calls $0.28, CO calls $0.28.

      Turn: ($1.24) 2:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, CO bets $0.14, Hero calls $0.14, SB calls $0.14.

      River: ($1.66) Q:spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, CO bets $0.62 (All-In), Hero calls $0.62, SB folds.

      Final Pot: $2.90

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows (Ac 3d)
      Hero shows two-pair, aces and queens (As Ks)

      Hero wins with two-pair, aces and queens (As Ks)

      Preflop: standard
      Flop: I guess I could have raised a bit bigger, especially if I was paying more attention to their loose-passive stats
      Turn: should I have raised? I'm getting it in on the river with CO anyway given the small size of his remaining stack, so I chose to call, not raise, in the hope of encouraging SB along too. The board is very dry so I don't think I need to protect here.
      River: std

      Hello member001,

      Guess against his stack you easily just raise it right on turn as well and get it in. Otherwise no way I am folding while he may easily have a lot worse Ax in his range.

      Best regards.
