      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:

      SB: 16/13 67
      When he checks flop I think this confuses me for the whole hand. Is he trapping with an A because he was initial raiser PF. I think he is stealing enough time here to make my re-raise acceptable.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q, J.
      2 folds, SB raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.20, SB calls $0.80.

      Flop: ($2.4) 6, A, J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($2.4) 2 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.30, Hero calls $1.30.

      River: ($5) 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $2.70, Hero calls $2.70.

      Final Pot: $10.4.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of jacks(Qd Js).
      SB shows a pair of aces(Kc Ad).

      SB wins with a pair of aces(Kc Ad).

      Doesn't look that complicated. Of course he checked the flop, he expects you to c-bet it with a ton of hands you'd fold if he donked out with his top pair. Thus when you don't c-bet, your hand looks exactly like what it is, because you'd have fired most of your airballs and big hands on that AJx flop, so either you're trapping or you have a marginal made hand.

      Since he's some kind of nit and he's betting twice into you anyway in spite of you possibly slowplaying something, he has QJ beat every single time on the river. Maybe he takes a shot on the turn since you showed weakness, but i won't give a 16/13 credit for firing twice to take you off worse hands on nl10.

      Hope it helps.
