      MP2: $0.47 (23.5 bb)
      MP3: $3.26 (163 bb)
      CO: $1.67 (83.5 bb)
      BTN: $1.08 (54 bb)

      UTG+1: $2.19 (109.5 bb)
      UTG+2: $1.20 (60 bb)
      MP1: $3 (150 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K K
      6 folds, BTN calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, BB folds, BTN calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.22) A 5 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.14, BTN calls $0.14

      Turn: ($0.50) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.12, Hero calls $0.12

      River: ($0.74) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.08, Hero calls $0.08

      I was afraid of the ace and just called the guy fearing a 3bet. But now that I think of it maybe I should have reraised big on the river and just folded if there was any resistance.

      Hi Trzewia,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: What would the purpose of a big raise on the river be?

      He never folds an Ax and may not call much worse. However, we can raise/fold something like 30-40c for thin value.

      Remember to try and post information about your opponents whenever you have it.

      Sorry I meant to say "reraised big on the TURN"

      Because I had the initiative and the turn card wasn't that scary and maybe my cowboys were good.

      Would that be a good play?

      Do you think he could call with a worse hand or fold a better hand?
