      Titan No-Limit Hold'em, $0.05/$0.10 (Titan HH Converter by Kreatief)

      Button ($17.40)
      SB ($18.72) (Hero)
      BB ($2.09)
      UTG ($1.70)
      UTG+1 ($11.09)
      UTG+2 ($10.81)
      MP1 ($9.79)
      MP2 ($9.55)
      MP3 ($2.19)
      CO ($12.97)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:diamond: , J:spade:
      6 folds, CO raises to 0.2, 1 folds, Hero raises to 0.5, 1 folds, CO calls $0.35,

      Flop: K:spade: , T:spade: , 4:heart: ( $1.2 )
      Hero bets $0.80, CO calls $0.80,

      Turn: A:spade: ( $2.8 )
      Hero bets $1.40, CO raises to 2.8, Hero calls $1.40,

      River: J:club: ( $8.4 )
      Hero checks, CO bets $3.00, Hero calls $3.00,

      Final Pot: $13.68

      Standard continuation bet on flop, hitting top pair on turn. After the minraise i put him on a flush, but decided i had the implied odds to call him and see the river with a nutflush draw. After hitting two pair, i decided to call his value bet since there was i chance i might be ahead if he hadn't hit the flush.

      With Js u have 2nd nut flushdraw on the turn. A calldown is ok here, he could easily have worse 2pair or even a pair.

      Hi AtonalMonk!

      If you raise preflop, raise more (~$0.70). Flop and turn are played well but on the river I think it's better to play bet/fold. Make a small blockbet and fold to a raise because he would only raise you with a really strong hand on this board.

      Good luck at the tables!

      The too small raise because i calculated the size of a potsize bet wrong due to the fact that i was in the SB. I usually look at the potsize amount and add 2x the to call amount, but i didn't adjust for the smallblind. If i had done it correctly, the raise would have been 0.75 :)

      A blockbet is a good idea, i have the problem that i tighten up when i sense i might be beat.
