      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:heart: , Q:club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, CO folds, BU calls $0.08, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) J:diamond: , T:heart: , 8:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.11, BU calls $0.11.

      Turn: ($0.41) 9:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.23, BU calls $0.23.

      River: ($0.87) 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.6, BU raises to $0.41 (All-In).

      Final Pot: $1.88

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a straight, queen high (Ah Qc)
      BU shows (9h 9d)

      Hero wins with a straight, queen high (Ah Qc)

      --- Flop: Gutshot but with 2 overcards - 1 of which can be discounted since it would help any player who has a 9, so only 6 outs - but I believe I was right to cbet here since I raised preflop.

      Turn: Catch my straight, only hand that beats me now is KQ, made a bet but decided not to bet too big since BU was on a short stack anyway and I could get it in on the river, which would hopefully make him more likely to call.

      River: Pushed him all in, though didn't notice he had only $0.41 - if he had a regular stack size would my bet size be okay here?

      Hello Royaltramp,

      Your lines and thoughts are fine but I would likely bet a bit bigger on turn, ~$0.30, although that doesn't matter that much since he doesn't have much left just in case he is drawing also for FD or something, pays you more.

      Best regards.
