      BB mucked 9 9 and lost (-$0.87 net)
      Hero showed A K and won $1.69 ($0.82 net)

      Flop: Not sure if I should have c-bet? I have no backdoors and only overcards to count on if called. Leaning towards a no now that I've reviewed the hand.

      Turn: I check behind because I put Villain on a lot of PPs which I'm ahead of now. Very unlikely he floated me OOP with Ax. And I feel they will only be willing to call me down twice with an overcard to the board.

      River: Bet a little less than 1/2 pot for PPs to call. Bet-sizing okay?

      When I hit my Ace, I felt I have a better chance to be called on the river than on the turn when I bet. Because I THINK I look stronger when I double barrel flop & turn as compared to c-betting the flop and now checking the turn (looks like I have air and just wanting to steal pot on river when checked to).
