      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      CO: $10.25 (102.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $12.84 (128.4 bb)
      MP: $17.85 (178.5 bb)
      BTN: $2.85 (28.5 bb)
      BB: $12.72 (127.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 8 8
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.30, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.25, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.70) A 7 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.33, Hero calls $0.33

      Turn: ($1.36) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.65, Hero calls $0.65

      River: ($2.66) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      $2.66 pot ($0.13 rake)
      Final Board: A 7 2 J Q
      CO showed A 5 and won $2.53 ($1.25 net)
      Hero showed 8 8 and lost (-$1.28 net)

      I could have 3bet pre flop and probably taken it down but villain had solid stats for 70 hands and would have strong range from MP so I was calling for set value. I call flop and flop since he bets so small. but looking back I think I should have folded the turn as he will not have many worse hands that he will fire a second barrel with.

      Hello 0744379,

      Don't really like floating Ax holdings. Just fold it on the flop and leave it there. Not worth even if he does a small CB, he may as well do that with Ax to invite you bluff or come along. A lot of hands in his range are Ax.

      Best Regards.
