Villain 29/29/0 - but only 7 hands. Maybe tag, maybe regular.

PokerStars Zoom No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (6 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://poker-tools.flopturnriver.com/Hand-Converter.php

Button ($2.77)
SB ($1.36)
Hero (BB) ($2.11)
UTG ($6.45)
MP ($5.42)
CO ($1.18)

Preflop: Hero is BB with ,
2 folds, CO calls $0.02, 1 fold, SB raises to $0.08, Hero calls $0.06, 1 fold

Flop: ($0.18) , , (2 players)
SB bets $0.08, Hero calls $0.08

Turn: ($0.34) (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $0.22, 1 fold

Total pot: $0.34 | Rake: $0.01

Results below:
Hero didn't show , .

Pre: Just decided to call IP
Flop: Bet seemed weak, so I floated
Turn: I have FD and he checked, so I just betted

Was turn bet a bit bad and unnecessary? I have showdown value, because he seem to be weak. Also I can hit my flush or 2 overs. I have a better kicker with Ax than he has.

Like how you played this hand!

You could 3-bet pre, but villain's isolation raise from the SB seems fairly strong and AKs is a good multiway hand, so I don't mind flatting here.

Flop is dry and has outs/backdoors for you so easy call given the price. Turn is a nice spot to build a pot with your picked up outs and take it down some of the time right there.
