      Everest - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: $2.32
      MP: $5.37
      CO: $1.48
      Hero (BTN): $10.38
      SB: $5.57
      BB: $8.10

      SB posts SB $0.03, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.08) Hero has A:club: T:club:

      fold, MP raises to $0.16, fold, Hero calls $0.16, SB calls $0.13, fold
      MP looks like weak reg. no stats now sorry ;(

      Flop: ($0.53, 3 players) 8:club: 7:heart: 3:club:
      SB checks, MP bets $0.38, Hero raises to $0.76, fold, MP calls $0.38
      i decide to go with minraise, not very standard for me yet...
      - trying to cheaply buy free rivercard
      - some little fold equity?
      if he 3bets i probably shove all-in, the line i wouldn't want to see is call and donk turn with me unimproved but that doesn't sound too great for him

      Turn: ($2.05, 2 players) 9:spade:
      MP checks, Hero checks
      now i improve to oesd too! fire?
      maybe i should have fired, but i just let go

      River: ($2.05, 2 players) 2:spade:
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.99...
      now i make a nonsensical bluff which can't rep anything
      however, does he even have anything either? i want him to fold better overcards (like some AK type of hand), which looks like he could have, however he probably check/calls any pp

      small pluses are that it doesn't have to work too often, and also betsize is terrifying :f_biggrin:
      still, probably better to fire on turn i guess? maybe i have some of his range (mainly flushdraws, also some K high) dominated on turnbet, then i can checkbehind on blank river like this one

      , fold

      Hero wins $1.93

      I would also not really raise big, but I think raising smaller than 2.2x times is not really the best, since you give him just too good odds to call with all sort of hands that he may easily fold if you were raised bigger.

      Consider potsflop play I like your flop raise and also I would played for stacks, turn gives you more equity, so bet 1.5$ and I think he would fold most of his flop calling range.

      River bluff with just A high is fine, but likely he also didn´t have anything, I think he would call you down if he has there top pair or better hand

      best regards,
