      BB: $3.51 (175.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J K
      5 folds, CO calls $0.02, BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BB folds, CO calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.18) A 7 J (2 players)

      Turn: ($0.38) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.32, CO raises to $1.67, Hero calls $1.35

      River: ($3.72) 6 (2 players)

      Results: $3.72 pot ($0.13 rake)
      Final Board: A 7 J K 6
      Hero showed J K and lost (-$1.85 net)
      CO showed A K and won $3.59 ($1.74 net)

      I raised on Sb with KJo because limp from CO looks weak and I was intending to steal the blinds and play a small pot if called. However, I called raise-shove because I did not think that villain will hold AK. AJ and QT was more likely, but I also felt he could have hands like AT, AQ, QJ, JT (pair+gutshot) which explained why I called. Bad play??

      Hello cheekopeh,

      You are most likely behind there on the turn when he raises you, he has a lot of better hands in his range. I can't really see him overplaying any Ax hand like that.

      Best Regards.
