      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $17.49
      BU:
      $7.43
      SB:
      $8.64
      BB:

      MP1:
      $15.80
      MP2:
      $48.31
      MP3 (Hero):
      $21.08


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, A.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, CO calls $0.40, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.95) 2, A, 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, CO calls $0.70.

      Turn: ($2.35) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, CO calls $1.50.

      River: ($5.35) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Final Pot: $5.35.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of aces(J A).
      CO shows a pair of aces(Q A).

      CO wins with a pair of aces(Q A).



      Cbet was standard I guess, but what about turn and river?
      Should I have played for pot control or protection? We were both deep stacked and I didn't want to get so involved with such a weak hand.

      Turn: Most of the time you just want to bet for value. Being deep doesn't change much - the extra money is only going to come into play if CO raises, and you would usually be bet/folding anyway. It will only really make a difference vs an aggressive player that can exploit your propensity to fold in this spot. In that case, checking the turn with the intention of calling down is a good plan.

      On NL10 this is a clear bet bet check line. There's value to be gotten out of flush draws and weaker aces that are calling you down...

      On the river I check/call or check/fold depending on bet size but in most cases people will check behind AQ and even AK there. Very few people know they should valuebet a strong Ace when you check the river to them on these stakes.
