      Party, $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players

      CO: $2.54 (63.5 bb)
      MP1: $5.65 (141.3 bb)
      MP2: $5.13 (128.3 bb)
      MP3: $4.10 (102.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $4 (100 bb)
      BB: $5.92 (148 bb)
      BTN: $2.35 (58.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A T
      MP1 calls $0.04, 4 folds, Hero completes, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.12) 9 4 T (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.09, BB folds, MP1 calls $0.09

      Turn: ($0.30) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.21, MP1 calls $0.21

      River: ($0.72) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.69, Hero calls $0.69

      PRE: First, I was thinking about iso but I would be OOP, and my postflop skills are not that good yet, so I decided to just complete.
      FLOP: TPTK against 2 opp, I feel like bet/fold
      TURN: Hate to be OOP. Check/fold would be too weak, I don't like check/call because I don't know where I am on river, so decided to bet/fold again.
      RIVER: I expected him to check behind or if he bets like 1/2 pot or 3/4 at most then he is value betting and I can pretty much fold my hand, but this pot sized bet looks like fish want to get me off my hand so I had to call...

      I can't say his stats was relevant because I had just 3 hands of him, but then again in those 3 hands VPIP/PFR was 100/33. It doesn't mean anything, but it just coincided with my thinking

      Results: $2.10 pot ($0.10 rake)Final Board: 9 4 T Q 5 MP1 showed 7 J and lost (-$1.03 net)Hero showed A T and won $2 ($0.97 net)

      Hello Oly0909,

      Preflop: I would definitely rather isolate here than make those hero-calls.

      As played
      Postflop: That's why I don't like that much your play here. It's just a freeplay pot what you are fighting for. :) Rather show aggression earlier. He has a lot of Qx hands in his range and maybe even stronger hands.

      Best Regards.
