      SB: $2.07 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 10, 3B: 13, AF: 1.0, Hands: 21
      BB: $2.45 - VPIP: 45, PFR: 14, 3B: 0, AF: 1.3, Hands: 76
      Hero (UTG): $2.22 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 17, 3B: 5, AF: 2.2, Hands: 25800
      CO: $2.00 - VPIP: 14, PFR: 14, 3B: 10, AF: 0.0, Hands: 21
      BTN: $4.97 - VPIP: 33, PFR: 11, 3B: 0, AF: 2.0, Hands: 18

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG with A :heart: Q :heart:
      Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, SB calls $0.07, BB calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.24) 2 :spade: 4 :club: A :club: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.24) 9 :club: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.24) J :diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.23, BB raises to $0.54, Hero folds, SB calls $0.31

      This is a perfect board for a CB, they would fold most of the times--> check, and get value on turn if flush doesnt complete. I dunno, I wanted to try a different line. Or just stay at the simple value bet?

      bet because you have a good ace (well ahead of the aces in their range) and there are some draws present.

      if they don't have anything they aren't going to call you on the flop or on later streets anyway, and if they are loose pocket pairs most likely will still call you at least once.
