      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 = ($1.93)
      CO = ($5.03)
      BU (Hero) = ($5.34)
      SB = ($11.10)
      BB = ($1.18)
      MP1 = ($9.31)
      MP2 = ($4.93)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 6 :spade: , 6 :diamond: .
      MP1 folds, MP2 raises to $0.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.20, SB folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.62) 6 :club: , A :diamond: , 4 :club: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP2 bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, BB calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.52) J :spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.95, BB calls $0.68, MP2 calls $0.95.

      River: ($4.1) J :heart: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.54, Hero raises to $1.62, MP2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.64.

      Question here is fairly simple: should I have bet more aggressively? Re-raised the flop? Could I have taken a line that would have likely extracted more money than I did?

      Hello Salivanth,

      Against such a bet rather raise it on flop, they are usually rather draws. And if they have the Ax then they are likely going to pay. But yes as played then rather even bet bigger.

      Best regards.
