      Results follow:

      BU shows two pairs, kings and nines(9h 9c).
      Hero shows two pairs, kings and fives(2d Ad).

      BU wins with two pairs, kings and nines(9h 9c).


      Villain plays 18/14/4.5, 194 hands
      I looked at his stats and thought his most likely holding would be a decent ace or a pocket pair smaller then JJ. He folds the aces on the flop, so on the turn I tried to get him off a pocket pair.
      Should I check-fold the turn or barrel the river too?

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      On the flop I like your cbet with nut FD and you could go for $0.4.

      Turn doesn't change much and it's rather a bad card. If you think villain plays straight-forward I don't mind betting here, since I expect him to fold his PPs and floats all the time.

      As played, giving up on the river is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen
