      Preflop: I would raise here to 8 or 10 cents. The limper's range is really wide here in the Small Blind and I think A5o is ahead of his range. We also gain the initiative and we have position so this is a very profitable raise. We can just bet most flops even when we miss.

      Flop and Turn are standard.

      River really depends on opponent. I don't mind folding vs an unknown, assuming that the average player at NL2 is more passive and doesn't take such overbet lines as a bluff. He also limped preflop so that is another indication that he should be on the passive side.
