      Been on a bit of a downer the past two days, it's not a nice feeling since I'd been on a heater for the first month of my "poker career"... but I guess it's times like these when you learn the most and the discipline shines through.

      Bodog - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $5.11
      MP: $1.56
      Hero (CO): $5.39
      BTN: $3.19
      SB: $1.93
      BB: $5.81

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has J:club: A:club:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, fold, BB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.62, 3 players) 7:club: 6:club: 5:spade:
      BB bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, BTN raises to $0.50, BB raises to $2.27, fold, BTN raises to $2.99 and is all-in, BB calls $0.72

      Turn: ($6.75, 2 players) K:spade:

      River: ($6.75, 2 players) Q:heart:

      BTN shows 7:heart: 7:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Sevens) (PreFlop 53%, Flop 36%, Turn 23%)
      BB shows 9:spade: 8:heart: (Straight, Nine High) (PreFlop 47%, Flop 64%, Turn 77%)
      BB wins $6.45

      Could I have played this hand any differently? I think I made good bet sizing, the initial call on the flop was good since I was offered good odds for my nut-flush. But once BTN 3-bets, my pot odds were ruined and once BB 4-bets my implied odds are gone, so any call would have been -EV. So a fold is the safest move.
