      Prima, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $77.06 (385.3 bb)
      Hero (SB): $31.62 (158.1 bb)
      BB: $26.55 (132.8 bb)
      UTG: $20.16 (100.8 bb)
      MP: $20 (100 bb)
      CO: $22.82 (114.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A T
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1) Q A 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, BB calls $0.70

      Turn: ($2.40) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.60, BB calls $1.60

      River: ($5.60) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $2.80, Hero calls $2.80

      Not sure of river call, no reads on villain.

      Doubt he has AQ as it would have raised sooner, and AK would have 3bet pre. I think JT Vbets larger. I put him on busted FDs and Ax going for thin value.

      Hey Gxtwo,

      Preflop open is fine.

      Flop cbet is good here for value with top-pair.

      Turn is a great spot to check. It's hard to get called by worse aces and Kx. Also since you range looks very weak after a check you usually won't lose value from flush-draws because villain will bluff with them. By checking you extract value from a wider range while simultaneously making your range look weak, so if turn goes check-check you can value bet and reasonably expect to get called by worse aces and Kx.

      River call is borderline. I think he might bet bigger with busted draws. Looks like a thin value bet. I don't hate a call. I don't think folding is ridiculous either.
