      No Hud and no reads on the opponent.

      Party No-Limit Hold'em, $0.04 BB (3 handed) - Party Converter Tool from

      Hero (SB) ($6.24)
      BB ($4.06)
      Button ($1.21)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, K
      1 fold, Hero bets $0.10, BB raises $0.28, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.64) A, 3, A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      Turn: ($0.64) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30

      River: ($1.24) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.94

      I call his 3bet because I didn't have any reads on him and I also didn't want to fold. My plan was that if I hit an A or a K I'm gonna try to play for stacks.
      Did I play it a bit passive? Should I have bet on the turn?
      On the river I thought that he could have some showdown value and I didn't want to let him check IP. Is this ok?

      Hi Acetbfish,

      Preflop: BvB we can 4-bet this for value and playing AKo OOp is not great because we rarely ever hit.

      Postflop: We should try to build up the pot on the turn by simply betting out and betting river. Or if we check make a small ck/raise because I doubt you get much more value with your line of ck/call and donk.

      But my standard would be to bet turn/river and get value from pairs under A.
