      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $5.65 (113 bb)
      SB: $5.31 (106.2 bb)
      BB: $4.08 (81.6 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $10.59 (211.8 bb)
      MP: $1.80 (36 bb)
      CO: $4.15 (83 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A A
      Hero raises to $0.15, MP folds, CO calls $0.15, BTN folds, SB calls $0.13, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.50) 5 T 6 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.36, CO calls $0.36, SB folds

      Turn: ($1.22) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, CO raises to $3.64 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Smelled like a bluff, but I plugged my nose and folded anyway.
      Too tight?

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Preflop: 4bb raise, especially on those stakes from UTG.
      Postflop: He ain't really bluffing there. He rather has something which is at least a made hand -> aka pair which might also have in it a FD. So instead Bet the turn a bit smaller like 70cents and then have even easier fold. If you making such a bigger bet then it rather means that you are willing to also play for stacks.

      Best Regards.
