      this hand was not played by me but i found it pretty interesting.
      what do you think of BU's play?

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

      BTN: $2.84
      SB: $1.91
      BB: $0.93 looks loose-passive
      UTG: $1.86
      Hero (MP): $1.94
      CO: $0.78

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has 6c 8d and folds,
      BTN has A:spade: 5:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.02, fold, BB checks
      of course openraise is much better, but i'm more interested in postflop

      Flop: ($0.05, 2 players) 3:club: 3:diamond: 7:spade:
      BB checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.05, 2 players) Q:spade:
      BB bets $0.05, BTN calls $0.05

      River: ($0.15, 2 players) 2:spade:
      BB bets $0.15, BTN raises to $0.60, BB raises to $0.86 and is all-in, BTN calls $0.26
      how to play this river on freeplay?

      Trust me, if you raise BU against blinds on NL 2 and make it 3x they would call all sort of hands, so you can play easily postflop game being ip. And on higher stakes no winning player would not limp BU if he can steal blinds.
      So definitely raise pre-flop, you get enough postflop situations even on raised pots

      I would bet flop 0.04$ to protect my hand and just don't give him any free cards that can improve his hand.

      Turn is standard call and also I would raise/call river, he has there more often flush or 3x than some kind of boat

      Best regards,
