      BTN: $1.88 (37.6 bb)
      SB: $6.24 (124.8 bb)
      Hero (BB): $12.21 (244.2 bb)
      UTG: $2.37 (47.4 bb)
      MP: $5.21 (104.2 bb)
      CO: $4.94 (98.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 2 2
      2 folds, CO calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.12) T K 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.10, CO calls $0.10

      Turn: ($0.32) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, CO calls $0.30

      River: ($0.92) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.80, CO calls $0.80

      $2.52 pot ($0.10 rake)
      Final Board: T K 2 6 4
      Hero showed 2 2 and won $2.42 ($1.17 net)
      CO mucked K J and lost (-$1.25 net)

      Villain is 35/0 over 17 hands.

      PF: I X for freeplay because I'm not comfortable playing 22s postflop. Villain is not full-stacked and so I don't think I can get him off just a c-bet.

      Flop: Bet fully for Value & Protection against any draws, Kx, Tx and PPs

      Turn: For same reason as Flop

      River: No draw is completed except 53 which is really rare.

      Villain called 2 streets of PSB so he either has Kx or FD. Might include 2pairs but he's more likely to raise them earlier. I go for PSB because since he already called 2 streets w Kx, he will most likely call a 3rd PSB. Should have bet $0.90~

      Preflop I'm ok in checking, since you are not comfortable in playing the deuces OOP in raised pot.

      I'd bet potsize on the flop. We build the pot bigger, and also his calling range won't differ if we bet potsize or 2bb.

      I'd bet around $0.25-$0.3 on the turn. There are still some draws, and also Kx is not folding, I think.

      I think $0.8 on the river is fine and you could go for a little bit less since I expect him to have a weaker range but given the fact that he is a fish I think $0.8 is fine.
