      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:club: , 9:club:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0,75, BU folds, SB calls $0,60, BB calls $0,50.

      Flop: ($2,25) A:spade: , 4:spade: , 4:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $1,8, SB calls $1,80, BB folds.

      Turn: ($5,85) Q:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $2,45, Hero calls $2,45.

      His line seems strong but his AF indicates that he could have Ax 4x or a draw.
      But i can't raise here so is calling down the best decision?

      River: ($10,75) 2:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $3,85, Hero calls $3,85.

      I pretty much knew i was beatn, if he made a bigger bet i would fold.

      Final Pot: $18,45

      Hello chocular77,

      On turn with his AF I don't even mind Calling there. Although as played the river is kinda close. FD completed and there ain't gonna be a lot worse Ax hands in his range. :( And not sure if he even would donk like this with them?

      But of course for the given odds shouldn't be that wrong to Call for the note-taking.

      Best regards.
