      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T, T.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.17, BU calls $0.17, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.41) 8, 7, 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.28, BU calls $0.28.

      Turn: ($0.97) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.66, BU calls $0.66.

      River: ($2.29) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.85, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.29.

      BU has PFR 21 / VPIP 16 / AF 2,5.
      PF, flop and turn play is pretty standard I guess. I'm not sure about the river, though.
      How about value betting / folding? And what size should the bet be?
      As played should I have called with the given odds?

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Nah, not really. Even if you get pretty decent odds. The problem is that there aren't many missed draws against you should play Check/Call. Therefore it's basically just Check/Fold or against some bad-loose players maybe block-bet/fold, although in that situation, I guess I'd basically Check/Fold, few 2pairs are possible as well and it's pretty thin value anyways.

      Best regards.
