      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with K :diamond: A :heart:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.25, Hero raises to $0.80, 1 fold, SB calls $0.75, 1 fold, MP calls $0.55

      Flop: ($2.50) 4 :heart: A :spade: 5 :heart: (3 players)

      Turn: ($5.28) 6 :heart: (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      River: ($5.28) 7 :diamond: (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $2.80, MP calls $2.80

      Opponent was calling 3bets oop really loose, I saw him show up with J6s once.
      When he leads the flop I put him on an ace or a flush draw, but since I have A of hearts, I am less scared of the flush draw. I guess raising here would be a better option?
      On the turn I decided to check back because I have almost nothing to protect from, and if he has a flush now I will loose less money. Is this a good idea?
      On the river I decided to go for thin value from lower aces, because I think he is very likely to call with them.

      Hello Indahaus,

      Overall the play ain't that wrong. We don't really want to get Check/Raised on turn which sometimes might even possible. Therefore taking the pot control line is totally fine here. Although you could even bet it bigger on river ~$3-4 should be fine as well. If he has the Ax then he is going to pay anyways. Doesn't have that many straights/flushes in his hand. And even if he had then he would just bet himself.

      Best regards.
