      Final Board: T 8 A A 5
      BTN mucked and lost (-$1.25 net)
      Hero mucked 8 A and won $2.46 ($1.21 net)

      Opp is 50/19 5AF, small sample

      5handed and plenty of nits at the table, so I open UTG

      I hit the gin on flop and c-bet (too small)

      I basically have the nuts on the turn and can give a free card, hope he hits.

      On river I think c/r is the most profitable play. Could I have gotten more value somehow?

      I think your flop bet is way too small. Just bet 30 cents immediately on the Flop, pot the Turn and jam the River yourself.

      BTN looks like a bad player, and I doubt he ever folds any FD/OESD/TX on the Turn so by checking you are losing value vs those hands. I also think that you should just check/raise the Turn yourself to build the pot. What happens often is that he may just decide to check back the River with his weak AX holdings, especially if one of the flush draws complete. You will lose value in such situations.
