      BB:

      UTG1:

      $11.46
      CO:
      $10.00
      BU:
      $17.93


      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A, A.
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.30, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.75) 5, A, K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, MP3 calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.75) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.00, Hero raises to $3.00, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.75.


      Should I have just called then bet the river? My thinking was if he was not going to call the check raise, he would not be calling my river bet.

      Hi,

      even your strong hands needs protection, so I'd bet on turn 1,45$.
      Because of balancing reasons. When you don't second barrel your strong holdings, your 2nd barrel becomes weaker.
      As played: Ch/R against aggressive villains on turn is fine to get a bet out of their floats.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      c/r turn looks strong, but since board is drawy he can easily b/c with flushdraw or Ax hand. So I like c/r more than c/c.
