      Hero (BB): $12.20 (122 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      MP: $11.68 (116.8 bb)
      BTN: $7.48 (74.8 bb)
      SB: $13.46 (134.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T T
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.30, SB folds, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) 8 T 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.30, Hero raises to $0.80, BTN calls $0.50

      Turn: ($2.25) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.42, BTN calls $1.42

      River: ($5.09) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.22, BTN calls $3.22

      $11.53 pot ($0.57 rake)
      Final Board: 8 T 7 6 K
      Hero showed T T and lost (-$5.74 net)
      BTN showed 9 Q and won $10.96 ($5.22 net)

      I think my problems started on the flop with my smallish re-raise.
      After that I think I was hoping to see a lot of two-pair hands calling the turn and river bets.

      Of course he could have a 9 very easily but any spade draw and 5, 6 hands are calling my raise on the flop.

      Opponent had LAG stats for 57 hands.

      If he is loose and aggressive, then no point 3betting, since you can face 4bet/ship there and then you will be forced to fold your hand. So, as played is totally fine.

      We hit our hand that we need to protect on this super-drawy board and villain is loose who will try to cbet, so we do check with intention t raise here. However, the sizing is off for sure, man. More like towards a pot size.

      2nd barrel for sure. We are still protecting our hand here. Villain's range is overcards, flushdraw, overpairs that call the small check-raise. Even, if he hit his straight, we are still up for a paired river. I probably would have bet more towards $1.80.

      For me, a bit hard scenario on the river. We have to ask ourselves what is the villain's range here that he calls us on flop and turn and what he puts us on to call us with that range on river. I'd make a bet on a river but not too big because we are getting paid only by two pairs and nothing else. The rest has us beat (sets would have shown more aggression much earlier). And I would fold, if villain goes all-in.

      Hello 0744379,

      Preflop: If he had LAG stats then why not just to 3bet it for value? :)

      As played
      Postflop: Check/Raise size has a HUGE leak in your game, fix it or you going to lose tons of money. Though otherwise on the turn betting should be still fine if we assume he is loose but I don't really see any reason to Bet the river. From what do you get called there which is worse?

      Best Regards.
