      BTN: $1.97 (98.5 bb)
      SB: $5.21 (260.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2.40 (120 bb)
      UTG: $0.86 (43 bb)
      MP: $1.11 (55.5 bb)
      CO: $2 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A 8
      3 folds, BTN calls $0.02, SB folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.05) A 8 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.05, BTN calls $0.05

      Turn: ($0.15) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, BTN raises to $0.32, Hero calls $0.20

      River: ($0.79) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.12, Hero raises to $2.01 and is all-in, BTN calls $1.46 and is all-in

      $3.95 pot ($0.14 rake)
      Final Board: A 8 2 5 2
      BTN showed 5 5 and won $3.81 ($1.84 net)
      Hero showed A 8 and won $0.00 (-$1.97 net)

      I c/shoved river because I thought I would get value from A with good kicker, but the problem is that I din't think about that he would be most likely raising with Ax preflop, but so should he raise pps and all other hands on BTN...

      Hello Huseens,

      Preflop: Could easily even isolate here.

      As played
      Postflop: Why would the guy even raise the turn with just an Ace? :D It's a freeplay pot so we can assume his range is stronger there. On the river even A2 gets FH and you just beat A5. Against which we should rather 3bet the turn ourselves than Call it and play this way.

      Best Regards.
