      BB: $3.68 (73.6 bb)
      UTG: $5 (100 bb)
      MP: $2.50 (50 bb)
      CO: $7.54 (150.8 bb)
      BTN: $5.07 (101.4 bb)
      Hero (SB): $16.72 (334.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 3 A
      2 folds, CO calls $0.05, BTN folds, Hero completes, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.15) 5 A J (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.07, BB folds, CO calls $0.07

      Turn: ($0.29) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: ($0.29) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.15, CO calls $0.15

      $0.59 pot ($0.02 rake)
      Final Board: 5 A J Q 9
      CO showed A 2 and won $0.28 ($0.01 net)
      Hero mucked 3 A and won $0.29 ($0.02 net)

      Should I be raising the flop there? I am assuming that villain will be raising with most Ax preflop on that spot and I am trying to protect from draws.

      Also should I be betting the river or just c/call or c/fold there?

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: I don't like our complete with a low offsuite ace. It usually gets us in more trouble than not and we usually win small pots at best and lose lots of small, medium and big ones.
      So I'd simply fold

      Flop: As played we can bet out for thin value/protection. We shouldn't expect villain to raise all Ax preflop.

      Turn: We can't really get much more value on this Qs. If it were let's say a 2s I'd bet again 1/2 to get value from Jx, spades.

      River: What are we trying to get value from with our bet? We split with the only weaker ace in the deck and there isn't much worse that can call us. I'd simply ck/fold there.
