      BB was 18/13/0 over 150 with AF of 1.

      PREFLOP
      Stealing. 2.5x is my standard open as I open any 2 from BU until someone gives me a reason not to.

      FLOP
      Value betting. BBs range includes many lower PPs, Qx as well as Jx.

      TURN
      No more value left.

      RIVER
      Was considering whether to call or fold. Given his low AF I should have let it go.
      However, I don't think it's super -EV to call as he could sometimes be value betting JT/9T/TT or even an occasional bluff (though unlikely).

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that the turn can be a thin value bet even against this player.

      I really doubt a 5nl player valuebets second pair on that river. Even at the higher limits that would be a stretch so we should just fold.
