      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      SB: $4.42
      BB: $2.45
      UTG: $3.36
      Hero (MP): $2.27
      CO: $2.00
      BTN: $0.51

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has A:club: A:diamond:

      UTG calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.08, fold, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.19, 2 players) 4:diamond: 8:heart: 7:heart:
      UTG bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.26, UTG calls $0.16

      Turn: ($0.71, 2 players) 9:heart:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.71, 2 players) 2:heart:
      UTG bets $2.94, fold

      UTG wins $0.68

      I think I should've bet the turn instead of giving him the free card which potentially completed his flush.

      Any tips to improve my play or maybe give perspective what I can do differently in this situation?

      Hello Slurpee,

      Preflop: While there is one limper I'd raise $0,10.
      Flop: Well I might even take pot control right on flop. You can easily just isolate yourself against very strong hands, straights/sets/2pairs are possible. :) Not really worth to pick the thin protection here.
      Turn: Well, some draws even complete, some more 2pairs possible. Most likely I'd just give it up.
      River: Not much to do than fold our hand.

      Best Regards.
