      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 7:diamond: 9:heart:

      fold, fold, MP calls $0.02, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $0.01, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.06, 3 players) 7:club: 2:spade: 6:diamond:
      SB bets $0.03, Hero calls $0.03, MP calls $0.03

      Turn: ($0.15, 3 players) 2:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.10, fold, SB calls $0.10

      River: ($0.35, 2 players) A:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      No specific reads on villains, except both were very loose-passive pre-flop. No post-flop reads at all on SB, MP believes 9 high is worth calling down on three streets with... That's no joke.

      On the flop I don't see how I could possibly fold, because I was pretty likely to just have the best hand. I wasn't too worried about MP in this hand, because he was just terrible. I was definitely ahead of his range.

      On the turn, when SB showed weakness, I tried to just take down the pot, putting him on some sort of straight draw or maybe a 6, so I just didn't want to give him a free card.

      On the river it was a simple check behind for showdown value.

      I am mostly wondering whether it wouldn't have been better to check behind the turn, maybe to induce a bluff on the river or something.
