      BB: 247 BB

      Hero (MP): 128.2 BB

      CO: 48.6 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

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

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 4 BB, fold, fold, fold, SB calls 3.6 BB, fold

      Flop: ($0.45, 2 players) 2:diamond: 4:heart: A:spade:
      SB checks, Hero bets 6 BB, SB calls 6 BB

      Turn: ($1.05, 2 players) 8:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets 14 BB, SB calls 14 BB

      River: ($2.45, 2 players) 6:spade:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      I had no information on villain. After he called flop and turn having such a small stack, I doubted he could have 53 but thought he could have any two paired A (A2, A4, A6 or A8) or a set. Turns out he had AT, but should I keep betting in this spot or expect to be behind a fair amount of time making the check behind the best option?
