      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, J.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, SB calls $0.35, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.9) A, 6, 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.9) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.70, SB raises to $2.50, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.6.

      I bet flop, its so dry i expect him to call with any pocket pair. On the turn i make a small bet for free showdown>get raised>easy fold. But my line on the flop and turn is ok? or check flop for pot control, maybe to induce something?

      No, don't check this back. The average NL10 player is way too passive, you can not induce as much as you might think you can.
      He's not even fullstacked so there's a decent chance he's a fish - go for value.

      If you have a read that he's folding a ton to cbets on dry Ahigh boards a check on the flop is an option, but it's not to induce bets but in the hope that he hits a weaker pair and pays one or even two bets on later streets.

      As played I like your small bet a lot to get some thin value out of small pocket pairs. Once he raises I think we can comfortably fold since he is very likely to have 6x.
