      One of the final hands I played today and the last I'm posting for now.

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with T:spade: , T:club:
      MP1 calls $0.02, MP2 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, 4 folds, MP1 calls $0.08, MP2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.25) 9:heart: , 4:heart: , 3:diamond: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.14, MP1 calls $0.14.

      Turn: ($0.53) 5:spade: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.36, MP1 calls $0.36.

      River: ($1.25) 2:club: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $1.25

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows a straight, six high (Kh 6h)
      Hero shows (Ts Tc)

      MP1 wins with a straight, six high (Kh 6h)

      Always felt fairly comfortable betting for value until the river card, in hindsight perhaps this was a mistake. Would pot-size bet on the flop and/or turn have been better? Checking behind the river was a no-brainer.

      Thanks for your help!

      Hello Brevvy2190,

      Preflop: Raise 6xBB while 2 limpers.
      Postflop: Guess you could add a bit on flop and turn to the bet sizing but it ain't a huge mistake. Also river bet is definitely pretty marginal for the reason that he ain't gonna Call anyways with a lot worse hands and our value is pretty thin.

      Best regards.
