      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      BB (Hero) = ($5.27)
      MP2 = ($2.92)
      MP3 = ($13.50)
      CO = ($3.39)
      BU = ($6.30)
      SB = ($8.78)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T :spade: , Q :heart: .
      MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.05, BU calls $0.05, SB calls $0.03, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.25) T :club: , 6 :heart: , 9 :diamond: (5 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.15, MP2 folds, CO folds, BU calls $0.15, SB folds.

      Turn: ($0.55) Q :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.35, BU calls $0.35.

      River: ($1.25) 5 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.75, BU raises to $2.00, Hero calls $1.25.

      Final Pot: $5.25.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, queens and tens(T :spade: Q :heart:) .
      BU shows a straight, queen high(J :spade: 8 :club:) .

      BU wins with a straight, queen high(J :spade: 8 :club:) .

      Again I know I am beat on the river when he raises me as he done the same thing in a previous hand, but I can't lay down top two, its just like my K9s thread, how do you deal with spots like this because if I learn to fold I make more $$ in the future

      Hello Maloco87,

      A lot of draws got there on the river, so even if you Bet the river then it has to be Bet/Fold. As you even say yourself that you are beat but why do you Call then? :D

      We know that it's difficult to fold in those spots but just get into habit of folding instead of calling cause you rarely going to be ahead.

      Best Regards.
