      $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      MP2: $2.06 (103 bb)
      MP3: $2.18 (109 bb)
      CO: $2.65 (132.5 bb)
      BTN: $2.32 (116 bb)
      SB: $1.56 (78 bb) 95/32/2.8/9.1/17/38
      BB: $2.19 (109.5 bb)

      UTG+2: $0.84 (42 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $2.17 (108.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A K
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 4 folds, SB calls $0.07, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.18) J Q K (2 players)
      SB bets $0.14, Hero calls $0.14

      SB bets $0.12, Hero calls $0.12

      River: ($0.70) J (2 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero calls $0.10

      I thought I had to call down such a loose opponent with my top pair and his weak bets. What do you think?

      Results: $0.90 pot ($0.03 rake)
      Final Board: J Q K Q J
      SB showed K 6 and lost (-$0.44 net)
      Hero showed A K and won $0.87 ($0.43 net)
