      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $4.08
      Hero:
      $5.09

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:club: , 4:club:
      7 folds, SB raises to $0.10, Hero calls $0.05.

      Flop: ($0.20) T:heart: , T:club: , 9:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15.

      Turn: ($0.50) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15.

      River: ($0.80) 9:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.7, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.80


      My plan was to see the flop cheaply while maintaining the position on sb, maybe taking the pot by min bet when he misses (if his raise preflop was steal) or just extract nice value if he actually has something (more likely, that minraise preflop stinks, it says "call me"). Flop was good for me, so I continued my plan as long as it was cheap for me.

      The question is, was that initial plan any good? He obviously has very good chance that he hit the flop nicely, so it could be fine bang for the buck if I saw my 5th club, but is such approach +EV in the long run?

      Hello skiffcz,

      Preflop: I guess more often you could as well just 3bet it here and maybe even make him fold directly if he has been stealing a lot.

      As played
      Postflop: For the given odds it's considerable and I wouldn't turn like very aggressive when I even do hit since keep in mind that it's still paired board and FH is possible as well.

      Best regards.
