      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $50
      CO:
      $59,25

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      CO openraise = 23%
      Fto3B = 74%
      Cbet = 65%
      AF by streets: 7,6/3,5/1,5

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:heart: , J:diamond:
      2 folds, CO raises to $1,50, 2 folds, Hero calls $1,00.

      He won't call me with a weaker Ax so i think just calling is fine.
      But i think i didn't play postflop well.

      Flop: ($3,25) J:club: , 7:diamond: , 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2,4, CO calls $2,40.

      I can choose on the flop between
      - c/c to also get money from his air.
      - c/r for balance since i do this on such boards often
      - donk for protection/value (but he shouldn't have too much flushdraws in his range)

      Turn: ($8,05) 7:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $5, CO calls $5,00.

      Since i donked i bet again for protection/value from weaker Jx

      River: ($18,05) 5:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Since he won't bluff most of the time if he bets (passive on river)
      Should i just b/f ~$8?

      Final Pot: $18,05

      Hello chocular77,

      I like your line here and I wouldn't really play any differently. Nice hand! No need to Bet the river most likely, doubt that he is calling with a lot worse nor he wouldn't be betting with them.

      Best Regards.
