      Not huge amounts of data on villain, but didn't see much aggression from him in other hands

      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.75) A 2 J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BTN calls $0.60

      Turn: ($1.95) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, BTN calls $1.50

      River: ($4.95) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.30, BTN raises to $7.80 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Results:
      $9.55 pot ($0.63 rake)
      Final Board: A 2 J 7 Q
      Hero mucked A 2 and lost (-$4.70 net)
      BTN mucked and won $8.92 ($4.22 net)

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      Both flop and turn are fine.

      On the river I would rather check/fold here against unknown.
      I can't really see any worse hands calling us here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      My thinking with the river was that I could bet to get value from hands like AK or AT or weaker aces, and to bet smallish so I could fold for a raise. I guess not many worse hands would be calling though...
