      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has A:heart: 5:heart:

      fold, CO calls $0.02, fold, fold, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.05, 2 players) A:diamond: K:heart: Q:club:
      Hero bets $0.02, CO calls $0.02

      This hand was at a filling up table and I thought my A pair was okay to bet small in this heads up situation in position.

      Hello PhoenixPhreak,

      Just shove the river whilst if he has Jx he is going to pay you. :)

      Best Regards.

      Is it not better to check the turn on this board and play our hand according to odds and outs? Too many 2pairs + Jx hands in his range for us to have next to any fold equity vs better hands + he is checking back a singe pair and sometimes even 2pairs anyway.

      We can assume that on this board we have quite big implied odds for a check/call and we can just donkshove our flush on the river and expect to get called by Jx or sometimes even 2pair. Sometimes we hit a 5 or an ace and we can check, hoping for a likely check behind by weaker 2pairs and 1pairs.

      Not really, I'd rather Bet the flop & turn bigger cause I assume he is very often paying also with weaker Pairs. :)
