      This table was just starting and this hand occurred before it got more players and filled up.

      PokerStars - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 2 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (BB): $5.00
      SB: $6.11

      SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has A:diamond: J:heart:

      SB calls $0.03, Hero raises to $0.20, SB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.40, 2 players) Q:club: 6:diamond: 4:heart:
      Hero bets $0.30, SB calls $0.30

      Turn: ($1.00, 2 players) A:club:
      Hero bets $0.70, SB raises to $1.40, Hero raises to $4.50 and is all-in, SB calls $3.10

      River: ($10.00, 2 players) T:heart:

      I thought versus one opponent my A was strong. And I think if I do raise on the Turn, it should be an all-in. I think heads-up my AJ was strong and he could be raising a lot of weaker Ax hands as well as a Qx hand.
      But to be honest, I am still learning about shorthanded and heads-up play, so I could use instruction here.

      Nah this is a really ez fold wo reads.
      My read here is that hes a passive fish cos he limped
      And when he raises turn u are crushed. Doesnt matter whether this is hu or fr without reads

      Hello PhoenixPhreak,

      Perfect example how you can overplay your TP once you hit it on the turn. :) You ain't really good there and should be rather folding your hand.

      Best Regards.
