Ace high is sometimes a winner

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

Hero (MP2) ($23.45)
CO ($13.16)
Button ($1.85)
SB ($4.47)
BB ($11.22)
UTG ($9.69)
UTG+1 ($10)
MP1 ($7.46)

Preflop: Hero is MP2 with As, 8s
3 folds, Hero calls $0.10, 2 folds, SB calls $0.05, BB checks
Most of the time, if I'm playing a suited ace, my line is limp / fold. I have fairly good position, so I'm going to see what the CO & Button do. It works out for me; I have position.

Flop: ($0.30) 6h, 7d, 2c (3 players)
SB checks, BB bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, SB calls $0.20
I plan on setting up for a steal to an overcard on the turn. These guys are weak.

Turn: ($0.90) Ks (3 players)
SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB calls $0.50, BB calls $0.50
Good card; I can represent any number of holdings and they KNOW I can float a $0.20 flop bet. I figure a little over half pot should get them off of their holdings.

River: ($2.40) Js (3 players)
SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks
What do they have? They called a half pot bet, and check the river. I give up. My turn move clearly did not work. I'm not going to risk any more money into the pot.

Total pot: $2.40 | Rake: $0.16

SB had 5d, 4d (high card, King).
BB had 8d, 9h (high card, King).
Hero had As, 8s (high card, Ace).
Outcome: Hero won $2.24
Draws for both of the blinds? Wow. I can't believe I took this one down with ACE HIGH!
