      BU is 41/6 AF 0.9 over 50 hands

      fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.08, fold, Hero calls $0.04

      Hero checks, BTN checks

      BTN shows 8:spade: A:heart: (Pre 29%, Flop 20.3%, Turn 13.6%)Hero shows A:diamond: T:club: (Pre 71%, Flop 79.7%, Turn 86.4%)Hero wins $1.01

      I expect BU to be pretty wide on this spot and think my hand is ok to defend from BB

      I flop top pair and decide to go for check/call on every street if nothing drastically changes on the board...he is likely to have weaker Ax hands here and I have good showdown value...I expected him to get his stack in on the river if I check...if I bet on the river I think he would just call me with stronger Ax hands

      Hi Lavek,

      Preflop: looks fine given his stack

      Postflop: Once we flop TP versus a less than 25 BB stack we can play for stacks.

      I'd look at raising the turn all in for pure value. Lots of draws and worse hands can call there.
