      River: ($3.00) 4 :heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $4.03, Hero calls $4.03

      Could my turnbet be a bit smaller? I just thought that since he likely has a weakish holding I'd be better off betting smaller in order not to force him out of the hand.

      On the river though I had difficulty laying my hand down because there are few 5x hands in his range and backdoor FDs also are not that likely. It does look strange though and he might be slowplaying or overplaying 2pair with Ax. What do you think?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Bet the flop bigger, Bet the turn bigger and otherwise vs his stack it's difficult to fold, although I would assume very often it's going to be rather stronger hand which may have trapped you. Doubt that there will be a lot of 2pairs which play like that.

      Best Regards.
