      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, Q.
      2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.12, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.12, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.3) 4, 9, J (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.3) Q (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.21, Hero calls $0.21.

      River: ($0.72) T (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.51, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.72.

      I was propably too scared, because all the draws were finished by the river.

      Hello redwarf01,

      Sometimes you might even bet the flop and often times take it down. Since when people tend to give up their PFA then they also are very likely to fold the hand. But checking behind is as well fine. And as played I'd also rather give it up on river, we are more often beat there than win any hand.

      Best regards.
