      Raise on turn to get value out of draws, felt my hand was likely ahead given line taken on flop.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      MP2:
      $1.46
      CO:
      $1.94
      Hero:
      $3.29

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      River: ($0.27) Q:spade: (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $0.27

      Results follow (highlight to see):

      Hero shows (Jc Tc)

      MP2 wins with a pair of aces (Ac 4d)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Why do you raise the turn? Doesn't make sense. It's just a freeplay pot and you are fighting over few cents. Rather just Call it and be happy if you even win the pot.

      Best regards.
