      BB: $6.86 (68.6 bb) Unknown Opponent
      UTG: $28.91 (289.1 bb)
      MP: $15.23 (152.3 bb)

      BTN: $15.57 (155.7 bb)
      Hero (SB): $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A 3
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.60) 5 3 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40

      I have a weak draw+ weak pair, anyway don't think he'd hit much here but I don't know his range so I decide to bet/fold flop. Anyway right now my hand is as good as a bluff with some weak draws that could improve on a later street.

      Turn: ($1.40) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, BB calls $0.80

      I picked up a nice draw, it would suck if he raises here so should I C-Bet again? On the flop my hand was a bluff but now it has some equity.

      River: ($3) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.80, BB calls $1.80

      Got lucky, no way he'll put me on a flush, if he was slowplaying a straight he's screwed anyway now :) .

      Results:
      $6.60 pot ($0.30 rake)
      Final Board: 5 3 4 8 2
      BB mucked Q Q and lost (-$3.30 net)
      Hero showed A 3 and won $6.30 ($3 net)
