      Hero wins $11.34

      PRE-FLOP: Fold? I feel my isolation is pretty loose here. but the players let behind me seem pretty tight

      FLOP: I was afrad of being X/R by a stronger Ace. so went for check behind to hopefully induce a bluff/call down.

      Turn: I have no idea what to make of his bet ?( looking back I think i should have just raised to $1 and hoped A/x was shipping.

      River: Only A4 and A5 we are beat by so easy value shove?

      Hello gxtwo,

      Preflop: Depends a lot how the opponent is playing, if he is rather nitty as it seems might be that his range is mainly only PPs which easily fold postflop.
      Flop: I'd still CB here, don't really see why we should be Checking behind and giving an opportunity to hit some kind of draw, bet it for value. Has enough of PPs which will pay you here.

      As played
      Turn: Don't get it either, why do you raise so small? How do you plan to get value from him.

      As played
      River: Not much to say...

      Best Regards.

      Isnt vpip: 31 kinda loose. and he seemed very fity foldy post flop. I just think he can easily have alot stronger Aces here.

      When we cbet, whats our plan if we get raised? are we stacking off? and how do we play a blank turn? check turn, Vbet river?

      I was wanting Ax's to reraise. But i guess that doesn't make sense now. I should have raised to ~$1.10? because Ax should be reraising anyway, and we also get value from draws?

      If you are raising preflop then it means you are doing it for value, so I don't really see what else you want to hit? Scared to CB cause he may raise? How often that happens? So Bet/Broke if you isolating preflop. :)

      With your play you see you can't even get his whole stack by making normal raise. Another factor why you should be betting the flop. Raise exactly this amount what would make sense (getting more money from him) and wouldn't give him good odds for drawing. :)
