      Party, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      CO: $1.88 (94 bb)
      BTN: $3.77 (188.5 bb) 20/14/14.3/0.9 (97)
      SB: $0.63 (31.5 bb)
      BB: $2 (100 bb)
      UTG+2: $2.22 (111 bb)
      MP1: $2.25 (112.5 bb)
      MP2: $2.18 (109 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $2.15 (107.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 4 4
      2 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.02, CO folds, BTN raises to $0.12, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.39) K 2 4 (3 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.10, BTN calls $0.10, MP2 folds
      This should have been $0.30 or so -- correct?

      Turn: ($0.59) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.45, BTN calls $0.45

      River: ($1.49) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks
      If he has the A, I'm sunk. Bet here and pretend I have it? Or what?

      Results:
      $1.49 pot ($0.07 rake)
      Final Board: K 2 4 5 3
      BTN mucked J K and lost (-$0.67 net)
      Hero showed 4 4 and won $1.42 ($0.75 net)


      Overall, I think I played this badly, but he played it worse.

      I check river, call small bets and fold to big ones.

      More importantly what the hell were you doing on the flop with that tiny bet? Either bet a bit more than half or check-raise. You want to get paid, you need to build a pot.

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      I'd most likely still Bet the flop bigger than so small, we are planning to get their whole stack. :P

      But yes, river rather Check/Fold, doubt that you will see so many worse hands calling you. We could of course block-bet like small but I doubt that the guy has a lot of bluffs in his range which bet the river.

      Best Regards.
