      iPoker - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: $4.38
      BB: $44.75
      UTG: $10.00
      MP: $11.79
      Hero (CO): $12.36
      BTN: $15.82

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has T:heart: T:diamond:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) K:spade: K:diamond: 4:spade:
      Hero bets $0.45, BTN calls $0.45

      Turn: ($1.65, 2 players) 7:club:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($1.65, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Hero shows T:heart: T:diamond: (Two Pair, Kings and Tens) (Pre 80%, Flop 92%, Turn 95%)
      BTN shows 4:heart: 3:heart: (Two Pair, Kings and Fours) (Pre 20%, Flop 8%, Turn 5%)
      Hero wins $1.54

      Villain was 21/12 over ~100 hands, and while definitely not that great a player, didn't seem to be too terrible at first glance. Definitely kind of fishy though.

      Can we go for some thin value here on the river, to try and get value of some bluff-catching A high or maybe a turned/river 7x or 8x from random float on the flop? It seems reaaaaly thin to me, so I just decided to check behind for showdown value.

      Hi Tino,

      Preflop: looks fine.

      Flop: We have the best hand here a lot and can bet for thin value and protection. Size is fine as well.

      Turn: Betting again is pretty thin but if we are check/folding I prefer bet/folding

      River: As played villain rarely ever has a better hand than ours (maybe 88) so yes we could throw a $1 bet to get called by 8x, 7x fd, 99, 55, 66 and even A high.
