      CO: 126.6 BB
      Hero (BTN): 103.2 BB
      SB: 198.8 BB
      BB: 40 BB
      UTG: 43.4 BB
      UTG+1: 45 BB
      MP: 40 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has 2:heart: A:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, SB calls 2.6 BB, fold

      Flop: (7 BB, 2 players) K:heart: 5:spade: Q:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets 5 BB, SB calls 5 BB

      Semi Bluff

      Turn: (17 BB, 2 players) J:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      I don't think villian fold here and he could have possible straight I want to keep the pot small and get paid if I hit my flush.

      River: (17 BB, 2 players) A:club:
      SB bets 10 BB, fold

      When they Ace hits my plan is just check as I have a ton of showdown value. Once villain bets I can't see what hands I can bet here I lose to any ace, Qx and 2p's. I can only beat a bluff.

      SB wins 16.2 BB

      Should I have beat turn as well? I don't think I have good fold equity.

      I agree that you have little fold equity on the Turn. At the same time you have a lot of pot equity, so you don't need too much fold equity to compensate for the turn semi-bluff.

      I would bet the Turn with the intention of firing all non K/Q/J rivers. This way, we can push SB out of hands like QT/JT/AQ/AJ.

      As played, river is close. I expect him to have the straight quite a bit. Main thing we beat is busted flush draws. I think it's close, don't mind calling or folding.
