      Play hand

      BB Originally sat at table with $2
      stats against BB Hands 10 VP22 PFR22 FCB100
      I had been running good for about an hour and had doubled up before bb joined table so not many stats on him

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T, K.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.06) 8, 8, 7 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.03, BB calls $0.03, UTG2 folds.

      Turn: ($0.12) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.08, Hero calls $0.08.

      River: ($0.28) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.16.


      Preflop: sb KT with 1 caller then according to bss shc this is a call.

      Flop: Thinking as this is paired board it would be good flop to bluff with my overcards.
      Get called, now thinking could be up against draw or overcards

      Turn: Thought suddenly hits me he could also have the 7, now definitely not sure what to. Do I bet to protect my bluff?
      Anyway end up checking which shows weakness , he bets and now dont no where I am in hand. So make desperation call.

      River: If he was drawing he just made his hand and is value betting it or his he continuing a bluff from the turn when I shown weakness by not betting.

      Question: Did I play this hand correctly up to this point, and is my thinking at each stage of hand correct.

      I am a new player and this is the first hand I have posted to this forum so any pointers gratefully received.

      Hello denetomtom,

      Most likely I wouldn't even donk the flop vs 2 opponents. Rather just give it up. Against HU pot I might even consider doing that or with some draw or mid-pair. We can't be sure that they are even laying down hands like A high or any other PPs which are smaller.

      As played Check/Fold the turn, no point to Call there anymore. It's just a freeplay pot not worth fighting.

      Best regards.
