      BTN: $2 (100 bb)
      SB: $4.14 (207 bb)
      BB: $1.96 (98 bb) 61/8/2.8/0.0/25/91
      MP: $2.04 (102 bb)
      Hero (CO): $2.05 (102.5 bb) 20/13/2.2/0.0/24/71

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K K
      MP folds, Hero raises to $0.06, BTN calls $0.06, SB folds, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.19) 6 Q 8 (3 players)
      BB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN folds, BB calls $0.20

      He could have donk bet here with a flush draw or a set or perhaps even a Qx hand like AQ, he seems aggressive enough to do that. So I decide to raise and fold to a 3-Bet as only sets would 3-Bet here, don't think a lot of people shove flop with flush draws at NL2.

      Turn: ($0.79) T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.50, BB calls $0.50

      After he called the flop raise I'm thinking he's perhaps on a flush draw. So I bet almost 2/3 pot to give him 2.5:1 odds. If a flush completes on the river I plan to check behind.

      River: ($1.79) A (2 players)
      BB bets $1.10, Hero folds

      Crap, anyway flush draws complete, even if he had a hand like AQ he beats me but mostly I'm thinking he has a flush and I decide to fold. So good fold?

      $1.79 pot ($0.06 rake)
      Final Board: 6 Q 8 T A
      BB mucked and won $1.73 ($0.87 net)
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$0.86 net)

      I would prefer raising flop 0.35$ since I want to put as much money in with best hand that I can and since he leads himself I think he is not really b/f too often. I would also bet a little larger on the turn to protect my hand and try getting more money in the pot. If player seems passive then river fold is fine. I would sometimes call there, since he has smt like 98 I think he may easily bluff that very scary river card

      best regards,
