      I called in from the SB with my AJ and when he bet I thought he either had a K or I had him beat so I floated it. When he checked the turn I thought he'd given up. When the A hit on the river I bet as I thought I was ahead.

      He put a min raise in and since it was only .66 more to win 3.30 I thought I had good odds to call. Plus, the tiny min raise seemed very fishy to me. I called hoping he had an with a lower Kicker...hoping he didn't have AK. :)

      Hello Edukator99,

      You will likely invest almost the same money on further streets if you just Check/Raise it on flop. And sometimes he might even fold his TP and of course lower PPs. :)

      Best regards.
