      Known players:

      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.105 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A:club: , Q:diamond:
      UTG2 calls $0.04, Hero raises to $0.20, MP2 calls $0.20, 6 folds.

      Flop: ($0.50) A:diamond: , 8:spade: , 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.32, MP2 calls $0.32.

      Turn: ($1.14) J:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      River: ($1.14) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.81, MP2 calls $0.81.

      Final Pot: $2.76

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ac Qd)
      MP2 shows a pair of aces (Ah Kh)

      MP2 wins with a pair of aces (Ah Kh)

      Is this a good value bet despite the result? The way the hand played I don't really put him on a better hand, and I think I get called by worse Aces often enough, or should I just c/c?
