      Final Pot: $2.45

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, aces and kings (Ac Kh)
      CO shows two pairs, tens and sixes (Th Tc)

      Hero wins with two pairs, aces and kings (Ac Kh)

      Villain had me nervous after calling the cbet on that flop; I would have folded had he popped me back.

      Was check/folding a good line? Should I have put a value bet on the river?

      Flop: Bet bigger, like $1
      Turn: Bet for value!
      River: Not really sure about betting here, if only a small bet. Lets see what judges advice.

      You have a very strong hand here - tptk + nutflashdraw, so bet for value. Possibility of a made flush on the flop heads up is really small, you shouldn't be afraid of that. You don't need to protect your hand that much, cause a heart gives you the nuts, but you should never bet lower than half the pot, and on that kind of boards bet at least 1$.

      This call by him means nothing and on turn you improve even further, bet and get value from AQ, AJ and flushdraws.

      1) bet 2/3 flop
      2) bet again for both protection and value and to build a pot if u hit flush. Facing a raise, ship it, your hand is more than enough to go broke with!!!
      3) blockbet/possible fold to a raise on the river if you don't hit flush. If you hit bet bigger ;)

      You played that extremely nitty.
