      Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) - Party-Poker Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      UTG ($11.11)
      Button ($10)
      MP ($15.29)
      Hero (BB) ($13.17)
      SB ($19)
      CO ($13.09)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:spade: , A:club:
      UTG bets $0.20, MP calls $0.20, 3 folds, Hero raises $0.90, UTG calls $0.80, 1 fold

      Flop: ($2.25) K:club: , Q:club: , 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.60, UTG calls $1.60

      Turn: ($5.45) 7:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.88, UTG calls $3.88

      River: ($13.21) J:club: (2 players)
      Hero raises to $6.69 (All-In), UTG calls $4.63 (All-In)

      I sized my bets so that I could shove here, but now I'm not so sure it was the right play. The flush draw makes it, but I have the A:club: , so he would have to be gutsy to call here with a weaker flush. Two pair also fits his betting pattern, but I can seem him playing a set like that.

      Total pot: $22.47


      Hero had A:spade: , A:club: (one pair, Aces).
      UTG had A:diamond: , Q:heart:
      Outcome: Hero won $23.53

      Being in the blinds you can 3-bet squeeze a bit larger there.

      Not only do you have the Ac but the Jc comes down too which means that the one likely flush draw combo (JT) is out.

      AK and AQ are part of his range so I agree with your line and bet sizing.

      Nice hand.
