      Party, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players

      MP3: $2.09 (104.5 bb)
      CO: $6.70 (335 bb)

      SB: $2.19 (109.5 bb)

      MP2: $2.21 (110.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $2 (100 bb)
      BB: $4.37 (218.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A J
      UTG+2 posts BB OOP, UTG+2 checks, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.08

      River: ($1.27) 5 (2 players)

      Should I have bet here?
      I was about to when I heard Veriz' voice saying, "What worse hands will call?"

      Results: $1.27 pot ($0.06 rake)
      Final Board: 8 4 A J 5
      Hero showed A J and won $1.21 ($0.59 net)
      UTG+2 showed T K and lost (-$0.62 net)
      Well, air, apparently...

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Overall I don't even mind your play to Check behind the river cause FD/SD got there but at the same time it's one of the spots where you could easily pick even the thin value cause I would assume him having enough of worse Ax/2pair in his range which definitely will pay you. :)

      LoL@veriz voice. :f_biggrin:

      Best Regards.

      Easy bet IMO, weak players will never fold A-x here.
