      Full Tilt - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $10.09
      CO: $11.00
      BTN: $10.71
      Hero (SB): $10.00
      BB: $9.00

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has K:heart: A:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.25, BB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.50, 2 players) 8:heart: 5:heart: A:club:
      Hero bets $0.33, BB calls $0.33

      Turn: ($1.16, 2 players) 9:club:
      Hero bets $0.80, BB calls $0.80

      River: ($2.76, 2 players) A:heart:
      Hero checks, BB bets $2.30, Hero calls $2.30

      BB shows 7:heart: 3:heart: (Flush, Ace High) (Pre 37%, Flop 33%, Turn 25%)
      Hero mucks K:heart: A:spade: (Three of a Kind, Aces) (Pre 63%, Flop 67%, Turn 75%)
      BB wins $6.87

      2.5x is my standard bb raise as I'll open almost every hand here vs unknown. Villain is unknown but obvs fish from this hand.
      Check/call river is because hand is too strong to fold vs unknown in my opinion, but tough spot if raised. Also I think any weaker ace bets here

      If you know he's a fish ill open big here like 4-5 and bet super big for value on flop and turn. I think river bet for value as well against worse aces and sometimes hand like 8T 69 can call too. they do check back sometimes and when raised its usually always the flush or full house and you can fold.

      The loss of value when you check the river is greater than the loss of value when you bet the river and get raised
