      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A, K.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 4 folds, SB calls $0.18, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.45) 9, Q, 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.30, SB calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.05) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.70, SB calls $0.70.

      River: ($2.45) A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.85, SB calls $1.85.

      Final Pot: $6.15.

      With my overcards + FD i didnt feel too bad about cbetting.
      On the turn I wanted to build up the pot and create FE, checking if i miss and value betting if i hit. On the river, i thought about it, and i made a thin value bet. for most NL5 players it's hard to get away KQo, and maybe he had AcX an was willing to pay up. I also thought he would donk something like AQ\A9.

      Hi,


      It's fine. Without reads I might make it a bit smaller on the river to make sure Qx calls, flushes were possible right from the flop and the A is an overcard, so when you ask him to put 2/3 of the stack he has left he might bail out if he isn't a calling station.


      Hope it helps.
