      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 4:spade: , 4:club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0,15, BB calls $0,10.
      I didn't really know whether to raise 3x or 4x because guy seems like a calling station and 44 plays pretty badly postflop.
      In the end I decided to keep the pot small OOP and went for 3x...

      Flop: ($0,30) A:club: , T:diamond: , 8:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,17, BB calls $0,17.
      This cbet is weak, but I expected him to fold if he didn't have anything...

      Turn: ($0,64) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.
      check/fold mode

      River: ($0,64) Q:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0,29, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.
      don't really beat anything... I think

      Final Pot: $0,64

      Hello Tomaloc,

      You could actually bet a bit bigger on flop ~$0,20 or something similar. Since making it almost 1/2 just makes it look weak and he may float you with anything. Although nothing much to do as he Calls.

      Best regards.
