      $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      CO: $5.32 (133 bb)
      BTN: $3.77 (94.3 bb)
      SB: $6.12 (153 bb)
      Hero (BB): $4.19 (104.8 bb)
      MP: $1.52 (38 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5 7
      MP calls $0.04, 2 folds, SB completes, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.12) 9 3 4 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP bets $0.06, SB raises to $0.24, Hero folds, MP calls $0.18

      Turn: ($0.60) 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, MP checks

      River: ($0.60) 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.60, MP calls $0.60

      Results:
      $1.80 pot ($0.12 rake)
      Final Board: 9 3 4 8 6
      SB showed 5 3 and lost (-$0.88 net)
      MP showed T 9 and won $1.68 ($0.80 net)


      I've always have problem when this kind of situation arise, especially on the blinds. There were 4 outs. Should I chase it? So far, I only want to minimize the damage on the blinds. Any calculation to do this?

      Hello,

      Preflop there's nothing else we can do.

      Check/folding the flop is good here.
      We just have a gutshot and against two people you will rarely have too much FE.
      If you are planning on betting the flop, then you should consider on betting some turn cards such as spade/T+/6/5/7 but overall I'd just stick to the "safest" way and check/fold it.

      Best,
      Plamen
