      Final Pot: $0.55.

      37/13 over 76 hands /// Note: min-steals with a loose range and cbets ip

      My biggest doubt about this hand is the flop and the turn:

      The A on the flop really put me on the defensive, since the villain would have a lot of A's on his range, id guess his range to be 44+, A2s+, KTs+, QTs+, JTs, A2o+, KTo+, QTo+, JTo, more or less on the PF maybe a little looser.

      Anyway on the flop im facing a lot of aces. I think i could've cbeted higher, bout 3/4 pot, for better protection and for value even since he was a bit passive. do you think he'd pay me even w/o ace?

      on the turn i dont know what i should do

      on the river i think i was either way behind or way ahead so i dont think i should bet here

      Hello padrezulmiro,

      Add to full stack. :)

      Preflop: Vs a min-raise you can often times even raise it 4x.
      Postflop: The question is if we even get called from a lot worse hands on the flop? I would most likely even considering of checking behind and maybe even keeping his range wide and also even weaker pairs which could be paying on later streets. It's going to be difficult for us to gain 2streets of value anyways and at the same time what's your plan on the turn and river? If we check the turn he could be bluffing the river and would be hard for us to Call.

      Best Regards.
