      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $0.59
      UTG2:
      $1.98
      MP1:
      $3.58
      MP2:
      $2.00
      MP3:
      $1.95
      CO:
      $0.81
      BU (Hero):
      $0.77
      SB:
      $2.01


      Preflop: Hero is BU with 4, 4.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 calls $0.02, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.02, SB folds, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.09) 6, 4, 5 (4 players)
      BB checks, UTG2 checks, MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.06, BB folds, UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.06.

      Turn: ($0.21) T (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.08, Hero raises to $0.20, MP1 calls $0.12.

      River: ($0.61) J (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.24, Hero calls $0.24.

      Final Pot: $1.09.


      Did I protect myself adequately against the amount of draws open? I was aware MP1 would probably chase down draws against the odds so I was focused on forcing him into mistakes.

      Hello,

      as it's NL2 limping pockets is ok in late position as people won't notice what you play like this. Beware whether there are some aggro guys behind you might be raising.

      In freeplays I bet pot on flop. On turn you could raise more, even $0.3 as there are so many draws. River calldown is ok as people sometimes donk draws on turn and that guy might have it.

      Hi,
      on the Flop I would bet 8-9ct, on the Turn I riase bigger, 24ct as minimum.
      I don't think that MP1 has often a FDraw here, because it is a Backdoorflushdraw, so maybe I would push on the River, but against unknown a calldown is ok.
