      Flop: ($13.50) K 6 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $5, SB calls $5

      Turn: ($23.50) 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($23.50) 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $11.75, Hero folds

      Anon table.

      BTN is a shortstacker, SB fish.

      Squeezed preflop, cause I'd be happy to go broke against BTN, but if SB calls, I'm still ahead of his range, plus I'll have position.
      Postflop? Flop bet was for him to fold some random Ax, or other overcards, but maybe too small this way. River call? I was tanking a lot before this fold...

      Preflop is good. We do it for value, we want to get it in vs the BTN + it can be for value vs SB alltough there aren't many good flops.

      I would CB this flop mainly to protect my hand tough there is also some value in the bet. I would deffinetely bet bigger, this might induce some raises. 55% pot.

      Turn is good.

      River is good.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      I like your play here, though I'd be willing to CB a bit bigger on the flop whilst it gains also more fold equity.

      Best Regards.
