      Hero (MP3): $6.16 (123.2 bb)
      CO: $4.87 (97.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A A
      3 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.22, CO calls $0.22, 3 folds, MP2 calls $0.17

      Flop: ($0.73) J 4 K (3 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.62, CO calls $0.62, MP2 folds

      Turn: ($1.97) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, CO raises to $1.60, Hero calls $0.80

      River: ($5.17) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $2.43 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Results:
      $5.17 pot ($0.21 rake)
      Final Board: J 4 K 6 5
      Hero mucked A A and lost (-$2.44 net)
      CO mucked and won $4.96 ($2.52 net)



      It was zoom and only had 10 hands of him.

      My main question is about the sizing of the turn bet. If i bet bigger (like 1.5$), am i commited and must shove on the river? I don't like doing that at single raised pots very often...
      Once he raises, he most likely has KJ or sets. I should have folded probably.

      Thanks!

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I like your bet.

      I would bet around $1.3 on the turn. If we bet $1.5 and he shoves I would fold and not feel committed at all.
      As played, when he minraises the turn I prefer folding without information.

      Best,
      Plamen
