      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has 9:spade: A:spade:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $0.30, fold, Hero calls $0.25, fold

      Flop: ($0.70, 2 players) T:club: A:club: 8:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.50, CO calls $0.50

      River: ($3.50, 2 players) 6:club:
      Hero bets $1.80, fold

      Hero wins $3.33

      Villain is a fish 30/15 especially postflop. He doesn't cbet much but he calls a lot.

      PF i like my call. I would also call A9s+, ATo, KTs, KJ+,QJs,JTs,22-99.

      I would 3bet/broke TT+, AQ to 1,10$-1,20$ maybe AJs, KQs to 0,90$ and fold to 4bet.

      On the flop i like to take the iniative and value/protect my hand. Actually that's the line i am going to take on most flops vs him when i hit good.

      On the river i think i am getting called by worse Ax, two pairs.

      Hey Deomedes,

      I don't have any problems with how you played this hand.

      I'd say A9s should be the bottom of your range for calling, but given the range you specify it seems you agree with this.

      On such a flop texture there are many worse hands that can call, so donking for value is fine imo.

      7 on the turn does improve villains range. He can still call with worse and it does give you an open-ender.

      River value bet is fine, fish can easily call with 2pair.
