Aces, the easiest hardest hand to play!
Hi, im Camila, I am Brazilian (im trying to speak my best English) and I would like to share one of my hands, looking for some advices.
So, Im not sure how to post a hand, but let s try it!
I played this hand at 2NL. I know its difficult to make a read on those limits because players tend to be a little bit crazy, but...ok...

The problem I had with this hand is,
On the flop and on the turn I was extracting value from some draws that villain could have. But on the river I didn't know anymore what to do.
I thought "Should I keep betting?", "Why am I gonna bet? For value? Im not so sure anymore. To bluff my aces? I don't think so." "should I check?"
I choose to bet half pot, for impulse just before the time is over.
Villain shoves and I decided to fold, because I felt I had no more strategy on this hand, and I thought would be better to let it go.
What would you do? Why?
