      Hero bets $0,49, CO calls $0,49.

      Final Pot: $1,49

      I play against a rather loose player and he could hold anything. Raised UTG2 because I wanted to play my hand a bit aggressively. I make a weak low pair on the flop, so I raise to protect my hand. Loose player calls. At the Turn I tried to figure out what he might be holding. Checked to see if he raised with a set of 8s or he could hold a ten. I thought to bet at the river, cause I didn't think he would hold anything. Should I just check the flop and see how develops?

      4betting out flop is better, since you likely have the best hand, so you don´t need to give them free cards
      I guess c/c turn is fine, since if you bet and he shoves you´re at quite bad spot
      If I´d valuebet river I´d bet out to 0,2$, since it is hard him to call with worse hands, also I think c/c river is fine play
