      Prima, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      CO: $8.75 (87.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $10.20 (102 bb)
      BB: $12.48 (124.8 bb)
      UTG: $7.71 (77.1 bb)
      MP: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 5
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) A Q 8 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.65) K (2 players)
      BB bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      River: ($1.65) 9 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      We dont have specific reads or notes on Villain.

      Should we bet this flop? I dont see worse aces here. Tons of draws here.
      What about his turn bet?
      If he bets river im snapfolding.

      Is particular play okay overall?

      I think betting the Flop is slightly better because there is so much value to be had from worse hands such as
      broadway straight draws (JT KT KJ)
      middle straight draws (T9 J9)
      flush draws

      I would then check this Turn and call a River bet. If it was checked to me on the River, you could argue for a thin value bet (50% pot) on the River or checking back is also fine. It depends on whether you think villain will call QX vs a 2nd bet.
