      BTN: $3.28 (65.6 bb)
      Hero (SB): $6.58 (131.6 bb)
      BB: $3.50 (70 bb)
      UTG: $5.29 (105.8 bb)
      MP: $5.05 (101 bb)
      CO: $7.80 (156 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9 9
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.13, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.35) 8 8 J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25

      Turn: ($0.85) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.36, Hero calls $0.36

      River: ($1.57) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BTN raises to $1.75, Hero folds

      $2.57 pot ($0.11 rake)
      Final Board: 8 8 J 6 J
      BTN mucked and won $2.46 ($1.20 net)
      Hero mucked 9 9 and lost (-$1.26 net)

      PF: Might 3bet but he has only 62.5bb so did not want to inflate the pot.
      Flop: x/c because he has a wide range of hands he can bet with and that I'm still ahead of. Any spade or straight draw.
      Turn: Does not complete draws thus I have reason to believe I am still ahead of most of his range.
      River: Jh is quite a good card for me as his chances of having a Jx is lower. I didn't know what to do at this point. Maybe should have x/c a River bet from him.

      I blocked bet because I wanted to go to SD cheap, but as played, now I feel if I bet I should have called his raise as I only need 25% to call?
