      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) HERO is BB A:diamond: 6:spade:
      UTG calls $0.04, 1 fold, CO calls $0.04, 2 folds, HERO checks

      Flop: 3:heart: 6:diamond: 4:club: ($0.14, 3 players)
      HERO bets $0.08, UTG calls $0.08, CO folds

      Turn: 2:club: ($0.30, 2 players)
      HERO checks, UTG checks

      River: J:club: ($0.30, 2 players)
      HERO checks, UTG bets $0.14, HERO folds

      As this is 1st hand, I don`t have any information. I think I would raise any suited ace, A9o+.
      Is checking behind too weak in this spot?

      I have to lead here to protect may hand, any 5x will call. Probably over-cards too.

      I can`t think of any worse hand, that will call. Maybe backdoor FD, but that`s not very likely. Or should I bet again for protection and, most likely, free showdown?

      In this spot I can only beat a bluff. Is this a call, as I need only 25% equity to break even?

      probably a fold. I doubt he bets any worse hand for value, and if he doesn't float your flop bet wide, i don't see how he can show up with a worse hand.

      I think pre-flop check is fine. A6o is hard to play postflop so I would rather keep pot small. I would likely bet flop and turn for value- he may call me with some worse hands and by betting I don´t have to fold better hand. I would likely bet river half pot for value- seems better option than c/f- he may always try to bluff you out since you checked twice and since he did not bet turn I think you may easily be ahead

      best regards,
