      Full Tilt Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.05/$0.10
      8 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $6.20
      UTG+1: $13.85
      MP1: $4.55
      MP2: $10.10
      CO: $3.95
      Button: $8.35
      SB: $5.15
      Hero: $2.35

      Pre-flop: (8 players) Hero is BB with 8 5
      2 folds, MP1 calls, 4 folds, 4 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: 7 6 8 ($0.25, 2 players)
      Hero bets $0.2, MP1 calls.

      Turn: 2 ($0.65, 2 players)
      Hero bets $0.3, MP1 calls.

      River: 8 ($1.25, 2 players)
      Hero bets $0.6, MP1 raises to $1.2, Hero calls.

      Final pot: $3.65

      I got free play in BB and OESD and a pair on the flop.
      Can I play like made hand with 10 out?
      or just lay down because it was free play. According to SSS, I should have folded on the flop because of free playing.

      Let me know good decision here, Plz :D

      I think flop bet was good, you want to build up the pot if you do hit the straight. Not sure about the turn bet. At river I'd bet more $0.9-$1 and call villains raise.

      On the flop you got following 5 clean outs:

      8 :diamond: , 8 :heart: , 4 :heart: , 4 :spade: , 4 :diamond:

      4 :club: isn't completely clean, because of the flush draw

      9 :spade: , 9 :heart: , 9 :diamond: and 9 :club: , aren't also completely clean, because they would help anybody holding a T getting a better straight than you

      So you have a marginal draw on the flop, but I still think you bet was ok, because you got some fold equity, and also gained control on the pot.

      On the turn, you see a flush draw which you don't like, but I think the c-bet was all-right, it just should have been about 2/3 pot (0.40, 0.45).

      On the river, you got one of your outs, and are probably ahead, so your bet should have been a bit bigger, lets say 0.85/0.90, and as that bet will pot-commit you, I think a push would also been ok, or a bit better.

      nh for me,should bigger value bet on river.You can be less aggressive when is better draw on board - c/c,c/f(would be nice to have opp stats).Well counted outs ,55 is outs too ( to 2p or full house). :) According to basic SSS thrash hand+draw is c/f.

      nice Flop for you.

      But I have bet the Turn higher. You should protect against one card FD's and when you get raised on the turn you could fold.

      Also you didn't get any problems on the River because you where committed as well.

      As you played, I think its quite difficult to call the River. It looks like a Flush, because he raises you.

      Bet more on the turn an to be able to go all-in on this river.
