      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $10 (100 bb) unknown
      SB: $10.40 (104 bb)
      BB: $14.20 (142 bb)
      UTG: $5.79 (57.9 bb)
      MP: $5.30 (53 bb)
      Hero (CO): $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, BTN raises to $0.70, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2, BTN calls $1.30

      Flop: ($4.15) T J 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($4.15) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50

      River: ($9.15) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $5.50 and is all-in, Hero folds

      I think I made a huge mess of this.

      Flop: another struggle between "bet for protection" and "don't isolate yourself against better hands". Villain can easily have sets here, but it seemed crazy to bet/fold and turn my overpair into a bluff. I guess I felt he doesn't have many draws in a 4bet pot (only QQ OESD or KK+/AK gutshot), so I opted for check/call.

      Turn: burning money to check/call here when the draw completes, I think.

      River: not much to say.
