      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T, T.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, BU folds, SB calls $0.06, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.16) T, 5, 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.10, SB calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.36) 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.18, SB raises to $0.52, Hero calls $0.34.

      River: ($1.4) 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.11, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.4.

      Should I have protected my top set more aggressively against draws?
      I guess it's fairly unlikely that SB called with a backdoor flush draw on the flop.

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      I'd bet on turn a bit bigger like $0,25 but as played I guess I am Calling there as well, getting in there without knowing the opponent is kinda close and rather not do that. Otherwise I guess I am as well making the crying fold there while there are just so many possibilities on river and he still bets near pot.

      Best regards.
