      CO: $1.93 (38.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J A
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.13, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.35) 2 4 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15

      Turn: ($0.65) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25

      River: ($1.15) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.65, Hero calls $0.65

      villain was unknown. Two routes to take, i could have 3bet but i thought i'd keep in weaker hands plus i am out of position.
      River i think would be a fold as i said in my previous post not many barrel off with AK etc

      Hello,

      Preflop I think calling is fine.

      On the flop I would rather check/fold here. We are OOP, we have ace high with no good redraws so I think folding and not getting into marginal spots will be better.

      As played on the flop, turn is good of course.

      The river is ugly and I think folding will be better here.
      I really can't see him betting too much worse hands here at all.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I think 3-betting would be fine, too. You are OOP, and it's hard to play AJ blind there without initiative, as his range is VERY wide there. And you should be ahead of bu's range anyway :)
