      Hero (BB): $5.02 (100.4 bb)
      UTG: $3.81 (76.2 bb)
      MP: $5.21 (104.2 bb)
      CO: $5.43 (108.6 bb)
      BTN: $2.02 (40.4 bb)
      SB: $6.27 (125.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A T
      3 folds, BTN calls $0.05, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BTN calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) A 8 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.22, BTN calls $0.22

      Turn: ($0.76) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.45, BTN calls $0.45

      River: ($1.66) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      $1.66 pot ($0.08 rake)
      Final Board: A 8 6 K 7
      Hero mucked A T and won $1.58 ($0.76 net)
      BTN showed 5 A and lost (-$0.82 net)

      BTN - ( $2.02 USD ) - VPIP: 80, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.5, Hands: 5

      PF: I iso-raise only 3bb because Villain is short.

      Flop: I c-bet around 2/3 pot on a dry flop. Wanted to bet around 1/2 actually.

      Turn: The K is not too bad I suppose since AK is less likely for him. So left w AQ/AJ which beats me and some random Ax or Kx 2p hands. I bet around 60% pot again.

      River: I don't know if I should put him all in here.. Wanted to value bet but also afraid I'll value town myself. I'm such a p*ssy

      On hindsight, I think I was rushing my decision. If I thought it through, Villain wouldn't be holding AJ-AK because he just limped in preflop. If lose against 2p or a set then it's just nice hand for me. I think this should be an easy River shove now. 24bbs flew away :f_cry:

      Preflop I'd make it $0.2.

      On the flop I like your bet.

      Turn doesn't really change much so I think betting again is mandatory here. I would probably bet around $0.55 though.

      As played, I think the river is more likely to be a shove.
      I doubt he folds Ax and the only better Ax that he may has are A8-A6 in my opinion (and two pair are probably raising the flop) so I think we should shove on the river.

      That kind of VPIP guys might limp in with AJ/A6 etc, or even slowplay sets (had seen that surprisingly often). On the contrary, he is so short that I'd bet here, as he might from time to time have worse Ax.

      Hi Coach,

      Am I right to say if Villain had full stack, against him I can value-bet the River for around half pot?

      CPallo - Yep they play any suited Ace. Hurts to see AK lose to some random 2p Ax always. But my biggest leak is I don't value-bet enough on the River! I'm a paranoid little wuss.

      If he had 100bb, I would probably value bet as well, around $0.7.
