      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $5.06
      SB:
      $2.05
      BB (Hero):
      $2.00
      MP1:

      MP2:
      $5.00
      MP3:
      $1.77
      CO:
      $2.00


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, 8.
      MP1 calls $0.02, 3 folds, BU calls $0.02, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.07) 3, A, 3 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.05, MP1 calls $0.05, BU folds.

      Turn: ($0.17) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, MP1 calls $0.12.

      River: ($0.41) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, MP1 calls $0.30.
      QUESTION: Wasn't this bet too aggressive? If not betting on this river, should I have chek/folded? Perhaps I overplayed my top pair.

      Final Pot: $1.01.

      Hello dember,

      You are chopping with any Ace there which is lower than 9 and value-towning vs better Ace. So therefore it means there ain't even that much value on the river. At the best a block-bet but even that I don't see any point cause most likely the guy ain't going to Bet with a lot worse.

      You get called by an ace there and which means you are just splitting and paying the rake.

      Best Regards.
