Hey guys,

Before work I went on having a short 1 hour session of 5nl zoom. This hand came up right away, which I might say is by far the most interesting one in a while :

PokerStars Zoom No-Limit Hold'em, $0.05 BB (6 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com/

Button ($10.05)
SB ($16.49)
BB ($5.33)
UTG ($5.18)
Hero (MP) ($5.02)
CO ($20.13)

Preflop: Hero is MP with K, K
1 fold, Hero raises to $0.15, 1 fold, Button calls $0.15, SB calls $0.13, BB calls $0.10

Flop: ($0.60) A, A, J (4 players)
SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.29, Button calls $0.29, SB calls $0.29, 1 fold

Turn: ($1.47) 8 (3 players)
SB bets $0.35, Hero calls $0.35, Button calls $0.35

River: ($2.52) 5 (3 players)
SB bets $0.40, Hero folds, Button calls $0.40

Total pot: $3.32 | Rake: $0.14

I don't know the opponents, but obviously they are not Phil Ivey, Negreanu and Doyle Brunson
How would you react to this hand ? Would you call that river after calling turn here or at upper stakes ? (because I know these things happen at 10nl at least, and one of them has red A3s and the other 78s of spades most of the time). If I was to close the action I would've called just be amazed at my own expense.

Thanks and regards,

I wished I knew how to play such hands well...

I think I would made a normal cbet OTF of ~70%pot, and have folded the donkbet OTT...
