      Known players:

      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.55 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9:diamond: , 9:heart:
      2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0,25, 3 folds, CO raises to $1,00, BU folds, Hero calls $0,90, BB folds, UTG+2 calls $0,75.

      Flop: ($3,25) 4:heart: , A:diamond: , 4:club: (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+2 checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($3,25) 8:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $1,00, UTG+2 folds, CO raises to $2,25, Hero calls $1,25.

        his line is very strange, I'm calling because if he has an A he will bet the flop....I don't know wha he has but seems as a bluff

      River: ($7,75) 3:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $4,50, Hero calls $4,50.

        line ok?

      Final Pot: $16,75

      Hi Cmas,
      First of all, if you are going to bet the turn (as a check would be best), you have to bet more. As a general rule, never bet less than half the pot, since smaller bets are basically useless (they give very good odds for any drawing hand or a cheap showdown, and won't have fold equity in case you are bluffing). It will also make a fold easier should you be raised
      As played, the river is an easy fold - you beat absolutely nothing, since the draw got there, and the board is paired and A-high.
      By the way, a lot of fish check the flop with top pair, so I wouldn't exclude Ax from his range.
      So in short, check down if you can, or check/fold with such a weak hand.
