      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, T.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BU folds, SB raises to $0.26, BB folds, Hero calls $0.18.

      Flop: ($0.54) 2, T, 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.40, Hero raises to $0.80, SB raises to $1.20, Hero raises to $1.33, SB calls $0.13.

      Turn: ($3.2) J (2 players)

      River: ($3.2) Q (2 players)

      Final Pot: $3.2.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of tens(Ac Td).
      SB shows high card king(Kc 3c).

      Hero wins with a pair of tens(Ac Td).

      IMP, the SB seems to be a loose aggressive with 39/39/2.5/60/33 [VPIP/PFR/AF/WTS/Hands].

      I was a little bit hestiated to decide to ship with his small remaining stacks, was it right to play with him and his small stacks like that?

      Hello anhvusa,

      Preflop: Well, I don't like the loose Call here. Your ace will be just so often dominated even if you think the guy is 3betting very light. You only have 55 hands on him. Not worth.

      As played
      Postflop: Don't really understand your raise here? Or either why do you min-raise it here? I guess I'd be inclined to just Call and let him continue with bluffs rather than raise it and make to fold a lot worse hands. He will have hard time to continue here without a made hand.

      Best regards.
