      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , 8:club:
      Hero posts small blind ($0.02), BB posts big blind ($0.05), CO posts penalty big blind ($0.05), 4 folds, CO checks, BU folds, Hero calls, BB checks

      River: ($0.35 - 7 bb) 7:club: (2 Players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.20, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled back ($0.20)


      CO was unknown. Judging from stack - fish.

      Preflop: completing.

      Postflop: I bet the turn for value as I would expect them to bet Kx/9x on the flop. After I get called and face a bet on the river I change my mind.

      Not sure about my play in this pot.

      Preflop: Even if CO limped in, I would be inclined to raise here sometimes though completing is also fine. When CO posts the blind, you should realize that his range is 100% of hands here which means that A8 is crushing that range pretty hard. This is a very easy raise.

      Flop: I think you can just bet out on the Flop 2/3 pot, and expect both players to fold more than half the time when the board is so dry. You only need them to fold 40% of the time with a 2/3 pot bet for your play to be breakeven (risking 40 to win 100)

      River: JT gets there, the draw missed. I don't think you can fold here though - He hardly reps KX or 9X unless he slowplays that on the Flop which is going to be fairly unlikely.
