      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has A:club: A:heart:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.30, fold, fold, CO calls $0.30, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) 8:diamond: 9:spade: 8:heart:
      Hero bets $0.54, CO calls $0.54

      River: ($4.85, 2 players) T:diamond:
      Hero checks, CO checks

      Hero shows A:club: A:heart: (Two Pair, Aces and Eights) (Pre 81%, Flop 88%, Turn 95%)
      CO mucks J:spade: J:club: (Two Pair, Jacks and Eights) (Pre 19%, Flop 12%, Turn 5%)
      Hero wins $4.63

      I have been running too many times my AA into set i suppose. I was planning to check call there. Way to passive play? Should value bet / fold to re-raise on the river?

      Hello RobertDaPro,

      Rather block-bet the river yourself then Check it, would be troublesome for us to Check/Call a very big river bet where we might even have to Check/Fold. But while there are still a lot worse pairs/PPs which are capable of paying us I would just block-bet the river like $2,50.

      Best Regards.
