      Hero (SB): $2.07 (103.5 bb)
      BB: $2.09 (104.5 bb)
      UTG: $0.71 (35.5 bb)
      MP: $1.58 (79 bb)
      CO: $2.09 (104.5 bb)
      BTN: $0.91 (45.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A 3
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.06, BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.18, BB folds, CO calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.38) 5 A J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.24, CO folds

      $0.38 pot ($0.02 rake)
      Final Board: 5 A J
      Hero mucked A 3 and won $0.36 ($0.18 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$0.18 net)

      Villain is 25/20 over 110 hands.

      First off, what do you think about 3betting with hands like this on these limits against relatively unknown players?

      Second, what is best on this flop here? I decided to just cbet it to get value from draws and perhaps some pairs, but I honestly wasn't sure about this one.

      Well, for 110 hands we should probably have something on his vs 3bet tendencies.
      Overall, I don't think 3betting in this spot is bad, but I'd make it $0.22.

      As played, I think we can check/fold here. I think his range is quite Ax heavy, also we are OOP and even if we bet here we will have to handle a bunch of hard situations on turn and river and without information it would be hard to take the best move.
