      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with 4 :club: 4 :diamond:
      6 folds, BTN raises to $0.15, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) 7 :club: 6 :club: 8 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.32) Q :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20

      River: ($0.72) Q :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Q is good card for him to bet on. If he bets river when can I call and how big does he have to bet so that I can? I have a feeling my line only works on these micro limits where people are too passive.

      Hello DaPhunk,

      Rather bet yourself on turn than Check/Call it. With Check/Call you will never find out where you stand although with betting you might even make him fold some hands or even get value from some draws/overcards.

      Best regards.
