      So, I've checked with this 22 on BB and I've decided to slowplay it, was it ok? Cause honestly I'm convinced until the turn, but I'm not too sure that the I've made the right decision on the river.

      Hello degre!

      Generally I dont like slowplaying on AA2 because you want to get the money in as soon as possible. If they have Kx,Qx,Jx and it falls on the Turn, they are still inclined to fold more often than you think because of the scary double Ace

      Therefore you hope that one of your 4 opponents has an Ax so you can get the money from him because he is not going to fold anyway

      So I bet $0.8, 3/4 Turn and jam River. If 3/4 Turn is >50% of your stack, I just go all-in right there


      As played, I c/shove the River becase your 5cents bet doesnt make sense and I dont see people on nano stakes raising as often as they call.
