      Pre-Flop: ($0.03, 6 players) Hero is BB A:heart: Q:heart:
      UTG calls $0.02, 1 fold, CO raises to $0.08, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.06, UTG calls $0.06

      Flop: 5:spade: 7:diamond: A:club: ($0.25, 3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks, CO bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, UTG folds

      Turn: 6:heart: ($0.65, 2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.44, Hero calls $0.44

      River: 2:heart: ($1.53, 2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      To check/raise the turn was my plan in the first place but somehow I changed when he bet strong again so I switched to check/call the river. But now I'm pretty sure I should've checked/raised the turn. ($0.65 + $0.44 + $1.91) / $1.91 = $2.57. So he gets 2.57:1 if I would check/shove the turn.

      Really depends on the player, check/call check/shove looks really strong on that board. But since it's nl2 and you don't have a read on the guy it's fair to assume he's not going to be able to let go of a good top pair, so it's fine. If you think he's decent he's probably going to be able to fold with AT-AJ, but he might valuebet them again if you check the river to him.

      Hope it helps.
