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

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

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) 3:club: 9:diamond: Q:club:
      Hero bets $0.61, BTN raises to $1.30, Hero calls $0.69

      Turn: ($3.35, 2 players) 9:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80

      Just wondering if my line is ok there? Did not want to polarize myself against stronger hands. Pot controlling, but board is scary and i could only beat pure bluff or busted FD on river.

      Hello RobertDaPro,

      You have to decide right on the flop what you going to do. Either 3bet it and get it in or just fold the hand. With calling you are giving away free cards and practically let him hit. Therefore just 3bet it it and get it in.

      Best Regards.
