      Hi please look at this hand

      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (5 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Button ($8.35)
      SB ($13.80)
      BB ($21.35)
      Hero (UTG) ($10.25)
      MP ($9.85)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 10, A
      Hero calls $0.10, MP calls $0.10, Button raises to $0.30, 1 fold, BB calls $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, MP calls $0.20

      Flop: ($1.25) 8, 4, A (4 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.60, MP raises to $1.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.60

      Turn: ($3.65) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, MP calls $1

      River: ($5.65) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3, MP calls $3

      Total pot: $11.65 | Rake: $1

      Results in white below:
      Hero had 10, A (two pair, Aces and eights).
      MP had J, A (two pair, Aces and eights).
      Outcome: MP won $10.65



      Ok firstly I thought he would raise AJ pre-flop, so I made the first bet. When he raised I thought he might have AJ, hence I made the low bet on the turn to see if he would raise... he didn't so I thought I was ahead and he had A9 or below.

      Any way I could have avoided this?
