      PF and flop is standard I guess. I make my nut straight on the turn. My options are raising (possibly getting oaverpairs to fold), or call turn / call river (or bet river). If he's got a full house or a straight, the money is going in either way. So I just want to get max value from weaker hands.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6, 5.
      2 folds, BU raises to $0.15, SB calls $0.13, Hero calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.45) 4, 2, 4 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.45, Hero calls $0.45, BU folds.

      Turn: ($1.35) 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.75, Hero calls $0.75.

      River: ($2.85) 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $2.82, Hero calls $2.82.

      Final Pot: $8.49.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a straight, six high(6h 5h).
      SB shows a full-house, eights full of fours(8c 8h).

      SB wins with a full-house, eights full of fours(8c 8h).

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Turn: Definitely raise the turn for value than Call. Why did you even Call there? Rather try to get value from any kind of pairs/PPs.

      As played
      River: We don't beat much anymore after he really bets pot here, we are more often against a FH here than a PP or whatever hand you did put him on. Don't even think that he would play this way his trips. Therefore I'd fold it here.

      Best regards.
