      hi again :f_p:
      hadn't played a hand in the last 15 days, mostly for obscure reasons.
      but now i'm back... maybe?

      Known players:

      0,03/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:diamond: , Q:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0,18, 2 folds, SB calls $0,15, BB calls $0,13.

      Flop: ($0,54) A:spade: , A:club: , 7:spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0,35, SB calls $0,35, BB folds.
      this is what happens when you take so much time off, you don't protect enough

      Turn: ($1,24) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $0,62, Hero calls $0,62.
      raise here? (don't really like the idea)

      River: ($2,48) 9:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.
      how to go about this?
      there may be value from lower Ax and even PP. but there's also many FD in his range methinks
      bet half/fold? makes some sense

      Final Pot: $2,48

      You can bet a little more on the flop in my opinion.

      On the turn I would raise for value here because he isn't folding an ace and it's not likely for him to has a better ace.

      On the river i would bet/fold here for $1.6.

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Flop: ~$0,40 at least would be my bet. No point to make it very small. If they don't have a hand they wont pay you anyways.

      As played
      Turn: Just raise it and protect your hand, it could be easily even some kind of draw.

      As played
      River: I'd still bet it for value here ~$1 and have an easy Bet/Fold if he even decides to raise.

      Best Regards.
