      I´d c/c turn, if you´re making that small bet, then 95% it shows weakness and players would re-raise to 4$ and what would you do then?
      I´d make 4$ on the river, but fold to re-raise, since it is unlikely that MP2 is re-raising with one pair here. AGainst re-raise you can´t shove, since your hand isn´t best most of the times.

      I peeked into results, my bad. But his line makes sense actually. Initially I put him on AK,AQ and he tries to pull some value out of rags on the river.

      Bottom two is a dangerous hand. I'd fold to his raise on the river. Not just on the river.. on the flop already.

      Re-raising river is very bad.

      A very bad call on several levels (you're notr getting the odds to draw to your flush, your flush, even if you made it, would be a very ratty one and may not even win, if you hit a pair, you're still dead to anybody).

      + the guy with AA wouldn't call you names after runner-runnering him with bottom two. Well.. it was his funeral.. he should have raised on the turn.
