      BB: $1.56 (31.2 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $6.46 (129.2 bb)
      MP: $1.03 (20.6 bb)
      CO: $5.41 (108.2 bb)
      BTN: $8.08 (161.6 bb)
      SB: $1.15 (23 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K K
      Hero raises to $0.12, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.12, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.31) 6 A A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.15, BTN calls $0.15

      Turn: ($0.61) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: ($0.61) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.61, Hero calls $0.61

      $1.83 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: 6 A A Q 7
      Hero mucked K K and lost (-$0.88 net)
      BTN showed T A and won $1.74 ($0.86 net)

      Is my raise small as I am playing OOP?

      My plan after I bet the flop was to check the hand down and c/call one bet, even though I was gutted to call a pot size one.

      Should I be folding there more often than calling given that I show weakness throughout the hand?

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: why are we opening less than 2.5x utg?

      Flop: we can bet 1/2 pot and get called by worse.

      Turn: we can't really bet for value on this Q anymore so checking is fine. Against unknown that can have lots of Ax because of our small preflop raise I'm actually looking to ck fold.

      River: his bet is interesting bc he checked the turn but since people rarely bluff pot size at these limits as bluff I'd ck/fold
