      Known players:

      0,01/0,02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:club: , K:spade:
      MP1 folds, Hero raises to $0,08, MP3 folds, CO calls $0,08, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0,19) A:heart: , 8:club: , 6:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,12, CO calls $0,12.

      Turn: ($0,43) 5:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0,2, Hero calls $0,20.

      River: ($0,83) 7:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0,4, Hero calls $0,40.

      Final Pot: $1,63

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of aces (Ac Ks)
      CO shows (As Qs)

      Hero wins with a pair of aces (Ac Ks)

      Because we were both relatively deep-stacked I didn't want to show too much aggression with one pair. Should I bet myself on the turn? Or is check/call the best option if his bets aren't too big?

      Against this kind of opponent(even though sample size is small but overal picture is petty bad player) i think you should bet all the way to extract value, in my opinion you are most times ahead against his range.

      Hello DesertStingray,

      Don't like to turn my hand there into bluff-catcher. Rather just Bet yourself on flop and reevaluate further actions than Check/Call till river.

      Best Regards.
