      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is UTG with A :heart: Q :heart:
      Hero raises to $1, 1 fold, BTN calls $1, 2 folds

      Flop: ($2.35) J :spade: J :club: 6 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.25, BTN calls $1.25

      Turn: ($4.85) 5 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.25, BTN calls $2.25

      River: ($9.35) 5 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.75, Hero calls $2.75

      I am not all too sure I like double barreling vs his stack size on this flop because it is convenient for him to go broke with all sorts of hands on either flop or turn.
      Should have check/folded the flop without any additional info?

      I also am not sure my river call is all that great. My assumptions at the time of play: he is unlikely to have Jx because he didn't shove. I would expect him to shove 5x as well. I also thought that there is a very high likelihood that he would be happy to just check behind with Ax and most PPs on this board. That combined with the small betsize/odds made me make the hero call.

      I also don't want to sound results-oriented, but villain did end up having a busted FD.
