      BTN: $6.37 (127.4 bb)
      SB: $5.19 (103.8 bb)
      Hero (BB): $10.57 (211.4 bb)
      UTG+1: $5.12 (102.4 bb)

      MP2: $5.07 (101.4 bb)
      MP3: $12.29 (245.8 bb)
      CO: $5 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8 A
      7 folds, SB raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.30) A 4 J (2 players)
      SB bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25

      Turn: ($0.80) 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40

      River: ($1.60) 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      Villain has 30% steal but 0% fold to resteal, so I decided to call.
      On the flop I figured I'd call to keep worse hands in and to keep the pot small. same on turn and river. Is that an OK line? or bet/fold flop?

      i don't mind your play.

      the huge cbet sizing is pretty scary though so if i wanted to find a fold it would be right there on the flop.
      as played it's tough to get away later vs his sizings.

      on the river we only need to be ahead 50/260 = ~19% of the time.
      i don't think that he's bluffing a busted flushdraw for this amount or betting worse pairs with such a big flop bet, but he could... and you also get to see his hand and take a note of what he is playing this way, his betsizings are pretty interesting. :f_biggrin:
