      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      BU:
      $1.46
      SB:
      $3.40
      BB (Hero):
      $2.00
      UTG1:
      $2.00
      UTG2:
      $1.03
      MP1:
      $4.34
      MP2:
      $1.39
      MP3:
      $4.98
      CO:
      $2.22


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5, 6.
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.04, 3 folds, BU calls $0.04, SB calls $0.03, Hero calls $0.02.

      Flop: ($0.16) 4, 7, 6 (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.12, MP1 folds, BU calls $0.12, SB folds.

      Turn: ($0.4) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($0.4) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.30, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Was this the right line to take? I wasn't sure if betting into a 4-way pot oop was maybe a little strong here. I assumed the call from BU meant he was probably on a flush/straight draw; most likely the flush draw which he completed on the turn and then checked as a bluff. Fourth heart somewhat sealed the deal as the chances of him having at least one heart here are pretty high.

      Preflop: Don't minraise, maybe you can get away with it with suited connectors on NL2, but on higher limits you don't want to minraise ever.

      Playing 56s from MP1 is very loose as well, I think you don't want to do that at higher limits.

      Rest seems all good.

      Hello numbnutter,

      Not much I would change in your play and I totally like it even. Nice hand! Good that you didn't level yourself to Call on river. :D

      Best Regards.
