      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:heart: , J:heart:
      MP2 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, CO folds, BU calls $0.10, SB calls $0.09, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.34) T:heart: , 6:heart: , 3:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.22, BU raises to $0.44, SB folds, Hero calls $0.22.

      Turn: ($1.22) 6:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.58, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.22

      Everything looks fine to me, until that minraise on the flop. I can call it, because i get great odds. On the turn he bets half pot, so odds aren't that great anymore, and now, even if I hit I won't have nuts so I folded.

      Hi staktas!

      Yup, not much to add, I think it was a nice hand. Re-raising the flop doesn't make much sense at these limits and you are indeed getting great odds for a call. Since you don't hit on the turn it's an easy check/fold - both because the board paired and because even if you hit you only have one more street to extract value and you are out of position... so nice fold.
