      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $3.08
      MP3 (Hero):
      $2.05
      CO:
      $0.80
      BU:
      $0.95
      SB:
      $0.67
      BB:
      $2.50
      MP1:
      $2.04


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 7, 7.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 3 folds, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.17) 2, 7, T (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.14, BB calls $0.14.

      Turn: ($0.45) 9 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.43, BB calls $0.43.
      I bet close to pot size because the 9 helps a lot of draws.

      River: ($1.31) 5 (2 players)
      BB bets $1.26, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.
      Even though a flush draw completes, I am unsure whether fold was the right decision. Sometimes it is just hard to let go.

      Final Pot: $1.31.

      Now good reads on your opponent helps a lot; IS he capable on bluffing dangerous rivers or not? If he isn't, then you can even fold that hand there. If he can, then you can sometimes catch those shoves.

      On the contrary, on NL2, only a few player are able or willing to bluff there.. So folding can't be too wrong.

      Hello dember,

      Could Bet the flop bigger but overall there is not much to do, whilst FD also gets there. We don't have beat that much. Good fold!

      Best Regards.
