      BB mucks Q:heart: K:heart: (One Pair, Tens) (PreFlop 48%, Flop 7%, Turn 19%)
      BTN wins $13.60

      I tanked for a while after the river bet of the BU. It was obvious what BU had, but I still had the other guy who flatted the BU bet too. I finally decided to go for the safer option, thinking that anyway he wouldn't have called a re-raise if he didn't had me beat? Was this right or should I have raised it to get a chance to win a sidepot?

      Hello MisClick,

      Nah, I don't really think that he would have Called you anyways there with a lot worse hands. Since already a 9x makes a straight and so on. Nothing much you can do on river. Although you made a mistake on turn, where you did bet that smallish, just put directly all-in the small stack and then decide on river what to do vs BB.

      Best regards.
