      Everest - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: $2.11
      UTG: $1.15
      MP: $1.88
      Hero (CO): $2.18
      BTN: $0.61
      SB: $1.94

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has A:spade: A:heart:

      UTG calls $0.02, MP raises to $0.09, Hero raises to $0.27, fold, fold, fold, fold, MP calls $0.18
      MP is 36/10/1af/29wts over 64 hands
      preflop should be standard

      Flop: ($0.59, 2 players) 3:heart: A:diamond: T:club:
      MP checks, Hero checks
      i actually tanked here
      i mean, i have the deck so crippled, what is going to continue if i bet? and this guy doesn't seem go to showdown that loosely
      so in the end i decided to checkbehind on this relatively safe board - maybe could throw a very small bet, like $.15? i dunno

      Turn: ($0.59, 2 players) Q:club:
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.42, MP calls $0.42
      now i think i have may have convinced some Tx, PP, Qx type of hands to continue, so i start the betting
      also, the board suddenly gets dangerous - serves me right i guess...

      River: ($1.43, 2 players) 4:diamond:
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.69, MP calls $0.69
      thankfully this relatively safe river comes, and i ended up with two streets of value.
      could i bet higher, and could i go for three streets?

      my own thoughts are - had to bet something on the flop and turn could be slightly higher

      I think you miss value if you play the flop like this. Just bet her 1/2 pot for value and barrel the turn and river. Try to get his stack.

      The only time I check here is if I have reads on a villain and know that he is a maniac and bets himself.

      Hello Tomaloc,

      I wouldn't Check the flop but I would rather just make a small Bet. :) We might even induce bluffs from him.

      Best Regards.
