      Known players:

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

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 6:heart: , 5:diamond:
      UTG1 calls $0.05, 6 folds, Hero calls $0.03, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.15) 8:heart: , 7:diamond: , 3:heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG1 bets $0.05, Hero raises to $0.20, BB folds, UTG1 calls $0.15.

      Turn: ($0.55) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG1 bets $0.1, Hero raises to $0.50, UTG1 calls $0.40.

      River: ($1.55) 5:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.7, UTG1 calls $0.70.

      Final Pot: $2.95

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG1 shows (Td 7c)
      Hero shows a straight, eight high (6h 5d)

      Hero wins with a straight, eight high (6h 5d)

      Preflop: BB is a passive player and I do not expect him to raise, so if I complete my SB it costs $0.03 to see a flop with $0.15 in the pot. Given the odds (20%) and implieds, is this do-able or do I not hit often enough?

      Flop: check/raise ok, or should I just lead out myself?

      Turn: same question as flop.

      River: bit ugly that the flush completed and his betting pattern (bet small, then call a raise) is somewhat consistent with chasing a draw (although in fact if he was drawing, he would probably have checked behind on turn, so maybe not). I bet just under half pot but would fold to a raise.

      Hello member001,

      Preflop: Pretty close actually with just off-suited and he ain't even fully staacked.
      Flop: Rather donk here which will accomplish almost the same.

      As played
      Turn: I'd Check/Raise it definitely even bigger if I am going for the Check/Raise at all, ~$0,80. But often when I see the opponent rather being passive then I'd donk it myself near pot.
      River: Not much to do, bet still for value because there are still hands which may pay you.

      Best regards.
