      Heya.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $9.88
      SB:
      $4.23
      BB:
      $9.50
      MP2 (Hero):
      $9.75
      MP3:
      $7.28
      CO:
      $14.23


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, J.
      Hero raises to $0.28, 2 folds, BU calls $0.28, SB calls $0.23, BB calls $0.18.

      Flop: ($1.12) 2, A, K (4 players)
      SB bets $0.20, BB folds, Hero raises to $1.10, BU calls $1.10, SB calls $0.90.

      Turn: ($4.42) 7 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.50, BU calls $2.50, SB calls $2.50.

      River: ($11.92) 9 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.00, BU calls $1.00, SB folds.

      Final Pot: $13.92.

      This is a kind of spot I always find a bit tricky against call stations, when I just have a pair.
      On flop I raise it for pure value.

      On the turn I bet agian for value as he might call me with straight/flush draw or even a worse A, but then again I think that my sizing is too small here? this again is something im curious about when I just have a pair.

      And on the river all the draws miss so I just bet small maybe get called by a weaker ace or even have a missed flush/straight draw spazz out.

      Some feedback here on these kind of spots would be greatly appreciated as I find these spots kinda tough for me the thought process.

      Thanks

      Hello Heffron89,

      I'd still Bet the turn rather bigger $3 at least and protect my hand and afterwards just Check it behind on the river. Way too thin value and no point to Bet and no worse hand will Bet anyways.

      Best Regards.
