      Hellohey,

      So many players limping with trash on NL2 - in a 3 handed pot I am happy to check fold over cards etc. But with AA IP I think I have to get as much money in for value - though in this instances the board is a drawy.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):
      $0.91
      SB:
      $3.53
      BB:
      $2.41
      UTG2:
      $1.39
      MP1:
      $4.97
      MP2:
      $1.00
      MP3:
      $2.43
      CO:
      $0.43


      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, A.
      3 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.08, SB calls $0.07, BB folds, MP3 calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.26) 9, J, 3 (3 players)
      SB checks, MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.18, SB calls $0.18, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($0.62) 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.65, SB calls $0.65.

      River: ($1.92) 9 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $1.92.


      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and nines(Ah Ac).
      SB shows a flush, nine high(6d 5d).

      SB wins with a flush, nine high(6d 5d).

      After both check I cbet just over 2/3 pot - if they hit set I expect check raise so I am not worried about that. I think mayyyyybe FD or SD but then I am HU on turn and villain checks, now I think I am ahead so I want as much in the pot as posisble - any feedback on the play please?

      Thanks,
      AKM

      Hey,

      Don't worry, you played it fine. You can't fold your aces in this spot. It's just a case of get it all in and hope you win :)

      Hey,

      If you think people are limp/calling trash a lot then you can raise 4x or even 5x preflop :)

      Now on this Flop I bet $0.21 for maximum value
      The Turn is an ugly card but still you have to valuebet it :)

      Best regards,
      Gerv
