      Villain just sat down.

      $0.05/$0.1 No Limit Holdem
      9 players
      Converted at

      UTG ($14.20)
      UTG+1 ($13.35)
      MP1 ($18.10)
      Hero (MP2) ($10.45)
      MP3 ($9.45)
      CO ($2.85)
      BTN ($9.85)
      SB ($10.15)
      BB ($12.30)
      [CO posted $0.1]

      Pre-flop: ($0.25, 9 players) Hero is MP2 K:spade: A:heart:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, 1 fold, CO calls $0.40, 3 folds

      Flop: 6:diamond: Q:diamond: 8:diamond: ($1.15, 2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, CO calls $0.60

      Turn: 9:diamond: ($2.35, 2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      River: 7:diamond: ($2.35, 2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1, $1 to Hero ($9.35)?

      In hindsight, maybe the flop bet should have been a bit bigger.

      As played, should I let it go or play the board?

      I'd be inclined to lay this one down. A lot of money is lost by betting AK to the death, you only have A high, the villian could have a whole myriad of hands.

      i would actualy try to check it down from the flop
      his not folding nothing on this board and he will jam a lot of hands
      as played on the river he has to bluff more then 75% for you to split profitabily
      i dont mind to muck it
