      Figured with pair & straight draw its ok to call villians bets here?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $2
      UTG2:
      $2

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

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:heart: , 9:diamond: . UTG2 posts a blind of $0.02.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 checks, 6 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.05) J:club: , 8:club: , 7:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.05, UTG2 raises to $0.10, Hero calls $0.05.

      Turn: ($0.25) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.15, Hero calls $0.15.

      River: ($0.55) Q:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.55, Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      While it's just a freeplay pot fold it right on flop, not really worth risking with your stack while playing OOP and just having TP.

      Best regards.

      Only risky my stack if I hit straight, figured he was likely to pay me off?

      Other than that I hope for free show-down (unlikely given play)

      Really doubt that. :) You are playing OOP, you gonna see a 4card straight, plus FD possible.
