      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:spade: , T:club:
      3 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, 4 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.12) Q:diamond: , 8:diamond: , 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks.

      Turn: ($0.12) 7:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, MP2 raises to $0.16, Hero calls $0.08.

      River: ($0.44) 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.5, Hero calls $0.50.

      Final Pot: $1.44

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP2 shows two-pair, eights and sevens (8s 7s)
      Hero shows (Qs Tc)

      MP2 wins with two-pair, eights and sevens (8s 7s)

      My call on the river was awful. I should remember that anything (weird 2 pair, flush, straight) is possible in an unraised pot, but I stupidly talked myself into going for the hero bluffcatcher. Not much more to say about that. But what about turn - probably should even fold there after the minraise, no?

      Hello member001,

      Flop: Why didn't you bet it here? Bet it to protect your hand.
      Turn: Likely just Bet/Fold, not worth to continue here while flush is possible better Qx is possible and of course 2pairs/sets are possible as well.

      As played
      River: Check/Fold, we don't beat much than bluff but I don't expect the opponents that often to bluff in freeplay.

      Best regards.
