      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:diamond: , T:heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, BU calls $0.20, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.47) A:club: , 9:heart: , 5:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.3, BU raises to $0.80, Hero calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($2.07) 3:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $2.07, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $2.07

      Flop: Since he's so loose pf I guess there could be a lot of worse Ax hands in his range. I'm not sure how many of these he would raise on the flop though? Also possible 99/55 raising for value and protection. Or a bluff that doesn't believe I have the A I guess.

      Is calling to reevaluate on the turn ok? And should I be planning on bet/folding the turn if its a blank?

      Turn: Since he bet so big I'm not really sure what he could have. If I had a stronger Ax I would maybe continue or? I didn't really see what he could be betting like that, seemed strong though.

      Anything I should have done different? And is my reasoning ok?

      Hello Jeffers16,

      While there ain't many worse Ax hands and you mainly beat only a flushdraw. Therefore I'd rather prefer just Bet/Folding the flop while we even don't know the opponent that much. A9/A5/55/99 already beat us and of course all the AJ/AQ/AK type of hands as well while he may easily even have them in his range.

      Best regards.
