      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, T.
      2 folds, raises to $0.30, folds, Hero calls $0.25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.7) 8, 9, 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, bets $0.33, Hero calls $0.33.

      Turn: ($1.36) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, bets $0.65, Hero raises to $2.00, calls $1.35.

      River: ($5.36) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, checks.


      Villain is unknown with only 3 hands played with me. He sits with a half stack, which means he is probably bad.

      He raises the CO and I decide to call? Donno why I did that.

      I flop the nut-gutshot draw on a paired board and decide to call again. I feel he'll c-bet with pretty much everything.

      On the turn I hit my gutshot and checks. If he has a hand he'll bet again and then I check raise. He will probably call with hearts and maybe stubborn overpairs?

      River I check/call as I see no point in betting.

      Probably a solid fold pre-flop and definitely flop...

      Hello Termi8r,

      Preflop: You don't know the opponent, you don't have position on him, you don't have really even a playable hand which might not even dominate his opening range. :P So I don't really like the Call while also giving an option for the guy behind you to Call.

      As played
      Postflop: Just fold the flop, cause by calling and hoping to hit some of your outs as GS or whatsoever you were hoping ain't going to work out. You don't have the implied odds neither you don't know even what are clean outs.

      Best Regards.
