      BTN mucked and won $1.73 ($0.98 net)
      Hero mucked T T and lost (-$0.75 net)


      Villain is unkown.

      Flop: I bet 1/2 pot because Flop seems pretty safe and I just want to protect from overcards.

      Turn: Against BU which I'm OOP, I elected to X/Fold to a substantial bet from him. He bets 1/4 pot and I only need 5:1 odds. I put him on a range of 6x, 7x, 55s, 66s and any 2 overcards. I call w the intention of calling another small bet from him on the River (1/2 pot or less) almost regardless of any card except maybe a :diamond:

      River: Not sure what's with his betting because it's so weird. It's over pot size so I folded.

      Another line I feel I could have taken was raise the Turn and then played X/Fold on River. But I thought deciding to take the Passive line is also okay as players tend to be quite passive too on NL5.

      Hello,

      There's nothing much to comment on preflop.

      I'd bet $0.4 on the flop.

      Turn card is not really good since now 88 beat us and if we check I think we have to check/fold even against this bet.
      I don't think he calls 55/overcards on the flop and his range is quite strong here.
      Also we are OOP and there aren't many river cards that we would like to see so prefer to just give up, rather than put 6bb here to fold on the river.

      River is an easy fold. This bet is never a bluff.

      Best,
      Plamen
