      I want general feedback/suggestions on the line adopted and on other possible lines. I'll not post my thoughts beforehand so I don't spoil it :D

      The villain is was playing a fishy game (some 60/10), but I don't have a decent sample for any advanced stats. I was VERY aggressive, actually having a great run of cards. I had won some 4 or 5 pots from him in a row, always showing good hands at showdown.

      Pacific Poker - $0.06 NL - Holdem - 6 players

      Hero (BB): $9.86
      UTG: $6.01
      MP: $6.25
      CO: $3.29
      BTN: $4.76
      SB: $12.17

      SB posts SB $0.03, Hero posts BB $0.06

      Pre Flop: ($0.09) Hero has T:heart: 7:club:

      UTG calls $0.06, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $0.03, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.18, 3 players) 6:heart: A:diamond: 7:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG bets $0.18, fold, Hero calls $0.18

      Turn: ($0.54, 2 players) T:spade:
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.54, Hero raises to $1.50, UTG calls $0.96

      River: ($3.54, 2 players) 4:spade:
      Hero bets $1.50, UTG calls $1.50

      Hello luizsilveira,

      Flop: Taking into account that it's a multiway pot and freeplay pot I would just fold with my mid-pair and rather wait for a bigger hit. Not worth trying to make hero-calls.

      As played
      Turn: Seems to be somewhat fine since he is still capable of having some kind of Ax type of hands and maybe even draws which are going to pay us.
      River: And yes, likely bet for value ~$2 or something similar.

      Best regards.
