      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J:spade: , T:spade:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, 2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, 3 folds, UTG2 calls $0.04.

      Flop: ($0.21) A:spade: , Q:spade: , 3:heart: (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.12, UTG2 calls $0.12, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($0.45) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.2, Hero calls $0.20.

      River: ($0.85) 7:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.2, Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.85

      Preflop: I call because there is a good chance to get into a multiway pot with JTs which has good playability. (I am not too worried about getting 3bet preflop because it seems to be extremely rare at this table.)
      Flop: Good flop for me. I bet, thinking "if I will call a bet, I may as well bet out myself". I now can't decide whether I would have been better checking in the hope of seeing a free card, or alternatively betting bigger.
      Turn: I call given the odds. Should I have raised?
      River: I am sure the crying call would have been throwing money away, and fold.

      Hello member001,

      If you want to bet the flop then I'd bet it a bit bigger ~$0,15 and otherwise the turn is rather a Call. For the reason that if we face a 3bet we will often times be behind and in long run rather lose the money getting in there. Just take the great odds and hope to hit.

      Best regards.
