      I think this guy was probably thinking the same thing that I was thinking the entire hand. That he had a lower pair. Was there any point in me making the turn bet? Would it get any hands to lay it down?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $5.79
      CO:
      $6.21

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 8:heart: , 8:club:
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, 2 folds, CO calls $0.20, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.47) J:diamond: , 2:spade: , 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.31, CO calls $0.31.

      Turn: ($1.09) 7:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.52, CO calls $0.52.

      River: ($2.13) 7:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.3, CO calls $0.30.

      Final Pot: $2.73

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (8h 8c)
      CO shows two-pair, tens and sevens (Td Tc)

      CO wins with two-pair, tens and sevens (Td Tc)

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Well, you have a leak in your bet sizes overall especially on turn. I mean do you really think he is ever going to fold any better PP there like 99/TT vs 1/2 pot size bet? I'd rather make a normal bet ~$0,70 at least and then most likely hope to get free showdown if you really consider him Calling also down you with a lot worse cards, maybe even overcards.

      No point to make such block-bets as you do, way too small and you exactly representing the hand you have.

      Best Regards.
