      Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      BTN: $1.99 (99.5 bb)
      SB: $2.01 (100.5 bb)
      BB: $4.35 (217.5 bb)
      Hero (UTG+1): $2.08 (104 bb)
      UTG+2: $1.80 (90 bb)
      MP1: $0.68 (34 bb)
      MP2: $1.36 (68 bb)
      MP3: $1.04 (52 bb)
      CO: $0.62 (31 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with J J
      Hero raises to $0.08, 5 folds, BTN calls $0.08, SB folds, BB calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.25) T T 8 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, BB folds

      Turn: ($0.65) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.44, BTN calls $0.44

      River: ($1.53) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.26, Hero calls $0.26

      Results: $2.05 pot ($0.07 rake)
      Final Board: T T 8 2 7
      BTN showed Q T and won $1.98 ($1 net)
      Hero mucked J J and lost (-$0.98 net)

      Felt like I was beat but $0.26c into $1.53 pot and I just have to call $0.26c to win $1.79? Villain more likely would have raised with QQ-AAs, and may be bluffing J9 and 97 combinations..

      Hello cheekopeh,

      We can't fold vs such a Bet size there, I am also calling but rather is the question if we shouldn't be maybe block-betting ourselves. :) He is just Checking behind weaker PPs/pairs.

      Best Regards.
