      SB checks, Hero?

      Final Pot: $3.26

      10:spade: Q:diamond:
      Hero shows two pair, Aces and Jacks

      Hero wins $3.12 (net +$1.55)

      SB lost $1.57
      CO lost $0.12

      Not sure I could call that pre, I should raise or fold? CO is 46/18/15 and 100% CBet flop, 20% 2B though after a significant amount of hands. He's also losing big. I tought I could only bet the turn weak to make him fold his weak hands but as my hand improve I like to re-raise. I just decide to check back the river because I'm afraid of KT or a flush..

      Preflop: Calling is probably +EV, but 3betting here to 50 cents is going to be better. CO is a huge fish and we would want to try isolating him from the other guy and play headsup. If we flop TPTK we can just stack off.

      Flop: I would just fold here when SB leads 3way. I think he usually has a draw or QX here and AJ isn't faring too well.

      Turn: He half pots again - Raising turn now seems fine. We lose to AQ and KT though - so try not to bet too big if not we would scare off his worse hands.

      River: I think you can still half pot for value - bet 1.50 and hope to get called by some AT/A:hX/KQ type of hand
