      4 folds, CO raises to $0.08, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.24, CO calls $0.16

      Flop: ($0.50) A 9 6 (2 players)

      Turn: ($1) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.45 and is all-in, CO calls $0.45

      River: ($1.90) 4 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $1.90 pot ($0.12 rake)
      Final Board: A 9 6 A 4
      CO showed J A and won $1.78 ($0.84 net)
      Hero mucked K Q and lost (-$0.94 net)


      Afterwards I thought this was a stupid play. However, my thinking was: contibet on flop and then I should have given up, but I tried to turn my cards into a bluff. Horrible?

      Hello Goosele,

      Sometimes I 3bet preflop and sometimes I do not. Depending on statistics and the reads I have on my opponent ;)

      As played I would just give up on the Turn, bluffing here does not make sense at all because he can have the Ace. If he does not , he has a PP and since there are 2 Aces on the board, it is harder for you to have one => he calls as well

      Best regards,
      Gerv
