      Hero (BTN): $14.25 (142.5 bb)
      SB: $13.09 (130.9 bb)
      BB: $12.61 (126.1 bb)
      UTG: $23.88 (238.8 bb)
      MP: $15.39 (153.9 bb)
      CO: $15.26 (152.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A J
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) 5 9 9 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.75) 2 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $0.43, CO calls $0.43

      River: ($1.61) 5 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks

      $1.61 pot ($0.07 rake)
      Final Board: 5 9 9 2 5
      Hero showed A J and won $0.77 ($0.04 net)
      CO showed A K and won $0.77 ($0.04 net)

      Preflop: I don't like my call. I am often dominated.

      Flop, Turn: after villain shows no interest by checking twice, I decide to stab.

      River: I think I missed an opportunity here with my check behind. It seems very likely that villain has overcards and we are splitting with A-high (double-paired board, so kicker is irrelevant). I think I should have bet 2/3 pot to try to bluff him out. It would have been a free option because if he calls we are splitting anyway.

      Hello member001,

      Don't really see any reason to Bet the turn if you didn't do that on the flop. Even more hands would call you on the turn like AQ/AK whilst you didn't Bet the flop, so kinda burning money. You have anyways beat anything what folds with your Ace high.

      Best Regards.
