      BTN: $1.91 - VPIP: 36, PFR: 14, 3B: 14, AF: 3.0, Hands: 14
      SB: $1.01 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 13, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 23
      BB: $1.77 - VPIP: 0, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 3
      UTG: $2.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 22, 3B: 0, AF: 0.5, Hands: 18
      MP: $2.06 - VPIP: 0, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 4
      Hero (CO): $3.46 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 17, 3B: 4, AF: 3.8, Hands: 3093

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is CO with A :heart: A :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.06, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.18, 3 folds, UTG calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.39) J :heart: 9 :diamond: 4 :spade: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.30, UTG calls $0.30

      Turn: ($0.99) 2 :heart: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.52, UTG calls $0.52

      River: ($2.03) T :club: (2 players)
      UTG bets $1.00, Hero ?

      I probably could have bet bigger on turn but I wanted to keep UTG's felting range as wide as possible.

      He bets $1 into $2 on the river, giving me 3:1.

      I'm left wondering if players on this limit (passive) will ever be betting worse?

      Hi Raknyo,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Same as with the previous hand you need to work on the bet sizes. There's no reason to bet so large on the flop and then follow up with a small bet on a pure blank.

      Keep betting big for value.

      The river is tricky because this line is rarely a bluff, so do we beat any value hands?
