      MP1: $9.80 (98 bb)
      MP2: $16.99 (169.9 bb)
      MP3: $3.70 (37 bb)
      CO: $10.94 (109.4 bb)
      BTN: $3.95 (39.5 bb)
      Hero (SB): $19.42 (194.2 bb)
      BB: $11.32 (113.2 bb)
      UTG+2: $4.70 (47 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with T T
      UTG+2 raises to $0.25, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.20, BB calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.75) 2 5 T (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG+2 checks

      Turn: ($0.75) K (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BB calls $0.50, UTG+2 calls $0.50

      River: ($2.25) J (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.29..

      ..., BB calls $1.29, UTG+2 calls $1.29

      Results: $6.12 pot ($0.28 rake)
      Final Board: 2 5 T K J
      Hero showed T T and lost (-$2.04 net)
      BB mucked K J and lost (-$2.04 net)
      UTG+2 showed Q A and won $5.84 ($3.80 net)

      I made a real balls-up of this one.

      Preflop - it feels fishy to complete the SB but I felt if I 3bet I am in danger of isolating myself against UTG2 range that beats me and being rather committed against his stack. So I just complete for set-mine.

      Flop - going for check/raise. Better to donk? Board seems completely safe for me so not much risk giving a free card, but on the other hand villains can't have hit much either so maybe I should just start building the pot.

      Turn - must start building the pot. Should have bet bigger for protection.

      River - horrible card. Bet / fold now. (Should even check/fold?? Does anyone value bet 2pair here?)

      Hello member001,

      Most likely it's better to donk the flop cause you will see often Check behind in that spot and Check/Raise might just scare away a lot weaker hands while some may even raise us or at least float.

      But otherwise seems to be fine.

      Best Regards.
