      Known players:

      $2.00
      BB (Hero):
      $2.00
      UTG1:
      $6.69


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, T.
      5 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU calls $0.02, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.12, CO calls $0.10, BU calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.37) Q, 6, 5 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.26, CO folds, BU calls $0.26.
      I decided to semi-bluff here. Perhaps a passive line of check/call would have been better against 2 opponents.

      Turn: ($0.89) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.
      I didn't dare to barrel here again.

      River: ($0.89) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Final Pot: $0.89.

      Hi,

      board is not that drawy and since you have strong draw I would prefer c-betting that board. I would also double barrel, since you still ahve good equity and A high does not win too many showdown- big turn bet (0.7$) would often have to make his marginal hands and that would give you option put pressure him on the river. Although that case BU stack is too small, so I would have put him just all-in with a lot of fold equity.

      best regards,
