      Hero (BTN): $2 (100 bb)
      SB: $2.11 (105.5 bb)
      BB: $2.13 (106.5 bb)
      UTG: $1.50 (75 bb)
      MP: $1.71 (85.5 bb)
      CO: $4.56 (228 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J K
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.06, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.18, 2 folds, MP calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.39) 7 Q A (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.23, MP calls $0.23

      Turn: ($0.85) 7 (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.85) T (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.44, MP calls $0.44

      $1.73 pot ($0.06 rake)
      Final Board: 7 Q A 7 T
      Hero showed J K and won $1.67 ($0.82 net)
      MP mucked T K and lost (-$0.85 net)

      PF: Villain 67/50 over 12 hands so considered unknown. I remembered I 3-bet here because I thought I was ahead of his range so many times like KJ-K9, QJ-Q8, JT-J8.. But on hindsight, think it's poor as his 3-bet calling range may have me crushed. Although I don't know if we can put him specifically on even a normal range??

      Flop: Decided to c-bet w this flop as it represents my hand a lot. But I see now I was out-thinking myself.

      Turn: Decided to give up and just hope for a GS

      River: Wonderful card for me, so bet 1/2 pot more for value against his Qx and Ax. Probably can bet 55c~ and he'll still call.

      Overall, not good play at all from myself?

      Hello cheekopeh,

      Preflop: What's the reason for 3betting in first place here? Even if he is a station you have rarely enough of hands here and clearly ain't gonna get called from a lot worse.

      As played
      Postflop: Though here not much to comment, I'd myself Bet the river bigger.

      Best Regards.
