      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (9 handed) - Full Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      CO ($2.10)
      Button ($0.94)
      SB ($1.92)
      BB ($2.23)
      UTG ($2)
      Hero (UTG+1) ($2.05)
      MP1 ($1.70)
      MP2 ($3.79)
      MP3 ($0.84)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with A, Q
      1 fold, Hero bets $0.08, MP1 calls $0.08, 5 folds, BB calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.25) 9, Q, 5 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.16, MP1 calls $0.16, 1 fold

      Turn: ($0.57) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.29, MP1 calls $0.29

      River: ($1.15) 10 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, MP1 raises to $1, Hero calls $0.50

      Total pot: $3.15 | Rake: $0.21

      Preflop- clear raise, MP1- unknown, BB- 19/7 fairly decent LAG.
      Flop- bet for value and protection.
      Turn- i thought that 7d probably havent helped him much, so bet for protection and value.
      River- not happy that he called the turn, I started thinking that I might be behind. I made thin value/blocking bet. After his minraise I thought that I am behind almost all the time. Still called because thought that pot odds are too good to fold. :)

      Is my line correct? Should i check the river in similar situations? :f_frown:

      Hello IflopMonsters,

      And welcome to the forum. Good to see new names posting their hands and trying to improve their poker skills. :) Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future and can help you move up the limits and get a better winrate.

      About the game, I'd bet the flop ~$0,18 and likely also bigger on turn ~$0,4. And as played the river is rather just Bet/Fold, we don't beat much there. Even if we get that good odds, it's just pointless to make the Call unless we know the opponent.

      Best regards.
