      Final Board: 6 7 A 5 T
      BB mucked and won $0.73 ($0.36 net)
      Hero mucked T Q and lost (-$0.37 net)



      Good or bad play?

      I feel once he is check calling flop he is either on diamonds or a weak Ace.

      When I was evaluating the hand myself I realised that on the river I might be beating some T-x hands since I showed weakness on the turn but how often will my opponent bet those? And given that I had the Tof diamonds how can I reason his c/call on the flop if not on a draw with Tx?

      I also dont feel that players of this limit will ever get off a weak Ace there with a 3bet.

      What do you think?

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Preflop: looks good

      Flop: Considering BB is so short he can call or ck/shove with a very wide range.

      The converter may have screwed up because his stack appears to be 0.87 however, considering the river bet he has put into the pot $1.13.

      As played villain has a lot of Ax that would shove that river so I would also fold.
