      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with T, T.
      Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.08, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) J, K, 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, MP3 calls $0.12.

      Turn: ($0.43) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.06, Hero raises to $0.34, MP3 raises to $1.37, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.77.

      What do you think? He made a very small bet on the turn, so I felt I could muscle him out of the hand, while apparently he was pretty strong. Was the re-raise from me on the turn correct, or should I have picked up on something and not try to bluff in this spot?

      Hello Hilto,

      Depends what was your plan on turn with your Check/Raise? We only getting to fold worse hands and he will continue with made hands against us, therefore Check/Raise doesn't make sense at all, at the best Check/Call and reevaluate river. Otherwise I don't even mind if he bets that that smallish, just take an eye on him and act accordingly next time when he keeps doing that. Just don't let yourself move around with such moves, ignore them.

      Best regards.
