      Not sure whether it was a good or bad instinct but after being called on the turn also I felt it was best to check/call the river... I was still going broke if opponent bets me all-in, so I'm kinda confused about whether playing c/c on river had any merit?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , A:diamond:
      2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.06, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.18, BB folds, MP3 calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.38) Q:diamond: , 7:heart: , 3:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.19, MP3 calls $0.19.

      Turn: ($0.76) T:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.54, MP3 calls $0.54.

      River: ($1.84) 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.92, Hero calls $0.92.

      Final Pot: $3.68

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows (Qs Jd)
      Hero shows a pair of aces (Ah Ad)

      Hero wins with a pair of aces (Ah Ad)

      Hello Brevvy2190,

      Preflop: Usually when being OOP I do raise even bigger 4x his raise rather than giving him perfect odds for set-mining.

      As played
      Flop: Why not bet the flop bigger? ~$0,26 at least.

      As played
      River: What's the idea of going for Check/Call mode? From what do you plan to get value from like this. Rather just ship it if you are going to Call it anyways. At least gain value from weaker hands from this which might just Check behind.

      Best regards.
