      Final Pot: $1.68.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and kings(K A).
      SB shows two pairs, aces and jacks(A J).

      Hero wins with two pairs, aces and kings(K A).

      have I lost value anywhere here or did I play this correctly?
      flop cbet was a standard thing to do, him leading on the turn and river had me thinking he might have set/straight or hit the flush so I just called and tried to get to showdown since bets were 1/2 pot

      Hi Hrab,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: It's really connected so we can even bet close to pot

      Turn: Turn is a blank and villain can donk as a block bet to see a cheaper river. I'd like to raise for pure value here.

      We can get value from 2p, 1p+draw, draws.

      River: Now with the FD there we have less value in a raise so calling is fine.
