      Considered a small raise on river, but probably very thin value here?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.102 by

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with 3:heart: , 3:diamond:
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, 6 folds, BB calls $0.05.

      Flop: ($0.15) 7:heart: , 4:heart: , 2:heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.15) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02.

      River: ($0.19) 5:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02.

      Final Pot: $0.23

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a straight, seven high (3h 3d)
      BB shows (Jc 9s)

      Hero wins with a straight, seven high (3h 3d)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Why do you Check behind on flop? Rather CBet it, you are most likely even ahead there and might get value from any kind of overcards+draw or whatsoever. Otherwise as played seems to be fine. I wouldn't really raise, don't think that we getting called from a lot worse. 8x also makes a straight. :)

      Best regards.
