      Party, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players
      vpip/pfr/3Bet/af (hands)

      UTG+1: $2.14 (107 bb)
      UTG+2: $0.49 (24.5 bb)
      MP1: $2.06 (103 bb)
      MP2: $0.89 (44.5 bb)
      MP3: $2.06 (103 bb)
      CO: $2.72 (136 bb)
      BTN: $4.34 (217 bb)
      Hero (SB): $2.02 (101 bb)
      BB: $5.12 (256 bb) 23/10/0/1.8 (115)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 2 A
      7 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.12) 2 4 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.09, BB calls $0.09

      Turn: ($0.30) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.19, BB calls $0.19

      River: ($0.68) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.35, BB raises to $0.90, Hero calls $0.55

      I figured he was just defending his blinds, looking for a flop.
      So I CBet.
      When the A came on the turn, I now have two pair, so I bet again. I did not think he had the flush, since he would have (presumably) raised.
      At this point, though, I was worried about A4 A9.
      So when the A hit on the river, I was worried I had a worse FH so I only called his raise.
      Did I overplay or under play this hand?

      Results: $2.48 pot ($0.12 rake)
      Final Board: 2 4 9 A A
      BB showed 6 K and lost (-$1.24 net)
      Hero showed 2 A and won $2.36 ($1.12 net)

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Turn: The problem is already on the turn, you ain't getting called from a lot worse hands and therefore betting there is out of question. He has a lot of X hands in his calling range on the flop. I would most likely Check the turn and plan to Check/Fold it.

      As played
      River: Most likely I would bet it even bigger for value. :) He could still call off with a lot flushes. But furthermore kind of difficult to fold while such an opponent could easily even overplay flush there. But now again if you didn't put the opponent on a flush then how can you Call here?

      Best Regards.
