      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has 6:club: 6:diamond:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.40, fold, LP calls $0.40, fold, fold, fold, fold

      If I simply limp here, decent players will know I will almost always have a low PP here. So I raised.

      Flop: ($0.95, 2 players) 3:heart: 4:diamond: 2:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.60, LP calls $0.60

      The flop is really drawy, but I have an overpair and a gutshot. A c-bet will not make any better hands fold, but a lot of worse hands such as overcards will call since the range with which I open from MP does not usually hit this flop.

      Turn: ($2.15, 2 players) J:spade:
      Hero bets $1.30, fold

      Usually when people call with overcards in position, they call one street to see if they can float. If I check to Villain here, it is quite a clear signal that I'm giving up the hand.

      On the other hand, I just argued that worse hands will probably no longer call while better hands will probably never fold in this situation (perhaps 77-TT). So I think I should have checked here.

      Hero wins $2.05
