      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 9, 9.
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 3 folds, BU calls $0.08, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) 8, J, T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BU calls $0.08.

      Turn: ($0.35) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.18, BU calls $0.18.

      River: ($0.71) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, BU raises to $0.80, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.11.

      When I look back how I played this, I think I could just check the flop and hope for free turn card - BUT, there is also a flush draw here and if the villain is on flush draw I don´t wanna give free card to him - RIGHT ?

      Turn - Should I made bigger bet here in order to protect my straight against possible flush

      River - I think this is the biggest mistake, I think I should have c/f river. Right ?

      Hello acceleration123,

      Flop: Bet a bit bigger, ~$0,14.
      Turn: Also bet it bigger, ~0,25 or something similar.
      River: And likely Bet/Fold should be fine, he ain't shoving or raising there with worse.

      Best regards.
