      BB: $0.87 (17.4 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $5.16 (103.2 bb)
      MP: $4.27 (85.4 bb)
      CO: $1.18 (23.6 bb)
      BTN: $4.56 (91.2 bb)
      SB: $6.92 (138.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with T Q
      Hero raises to $0.15, 4 folds, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) 6 7 A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.22, BB calls $0.22

      Turn: ($0.76) 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.76) T (2 players)
      BB bets $0.76, Hero folds

      $0.76 pot ($0.03 rake)
      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.
